"For the Moomin fans, Dancing Moominvalley is happening at the Shanghai Children's Art Theatre on September 26-27. Expect lots of dancing hippo-like creatures from the popular Finnish children's series. Tickets start at 180rmb."
"Dancing Moominvalley is a dance production based on The Tales From The Moominvalley, the sixth book in the popular children’s series by Finnish writer Tove Jansson.
The show is choreographed by Samuli Roininen and composed by Heikki Mäenpää. It follows the stories of the Moomin family and adapts the themes of the novel – including friendliness, difference, and otherness. The performance was featured in the Finnish cultural program at the 2010 Shanghai Expo where it won the Culture Award. Expect lots of dancing hippos."
