A mysterious snake settles on the bottom of the sea and upsets the sea creatures: what kind of monster is this?
Based on a story of Hans Christian Andersen.

In the 'The Great Connection' we set out to create a small underwater musical/operetta dealing with the first encounter between the mythological creatures of the sea and the Information Superhighway. It is a loose reinterpretation of an old HC Andersen story where the ocean wildlife is wondering about a new telegraph cable appearing at the seabed. We reworked the material to be a more contemporary philosophical musing on human connection through mythology vs the digital communication age.
And the creatures asks themselves:
Is this the future? Or will the teeth of this thing cause nothing but tears?
In future and past we are all connected...
