For over a hundred years, Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up, has been one of the best-known characters in children's literature. Generations of children have spun out the adventures that Peter, his girlfriend Wendy, the pirate captain Hook and the fairy Tinkerbell experience in their imagination and dreamed of one day being able to roam the island of Neverland themselves.
David Simic, the director and choreographer of the Kinder Ballett Kompanie, has also been fascinated by "Peter Pan" since he saw a ballet version of the story in his hometown of Belgrade as a child. Now he has developed a version for the main stage of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in which the children and young people themselves embody the heroes and villains of the fairytale adventure story.
To the music of Edvard Grieg's "Peer Gynt" and Alexander Glasunov's "Raymonda", about 50 children and young people between the ages of 6 and 18 can be seen in a variety of roles in "Children Dance: Peter Pan". The costumes were designed by the internationally award-winning costume designer Angelina Atlagic, who has worked for the Staatsballett Berlin, the Bolshoi Theatre, the Compania Nacional de Danza in Madrid and the Greek National Theatre, among others.
Based on a novel by James Matthew Barrie [1860-1937]Tape music
