Sergei Prokofiev’s timeless tale of Peter and The Wolf howls into Melbourne this winter, in a beautiful new reimagined performance.
Ireland's CoisCéim Dance Theatre will perform The Wolf and Peter at the Art Centre Melbourne's Fairfax studio for two days only this July.
This playful interpretation of the classic tale will be told from the perspective of The Wolf. Filled with dance and live music, this fun and richly theatrical production will take children and their families on a thrilling adventure to explore and discover contemporary dance and performance.
“The composition seems to beg to be danced to, to tell the story to children of the computer generation, but only using time honoured stage techniques, magic and dancing from the heart,’’ says Director David Bolger.
“By flipping the title and allowing The Wolf to be the star, I want to tell the story from his/her point of view. Letting the Huntsmen be the baddies’ and reinterpreting this classic in way that speaks to the next generation, while being respectful to the richness of the original story, music and dance of the past.” Bolger continues.
In this beautifully visual performance, Bolger intends to introduce children to music, the orchestra, and to dance.
“The Wolf and Peter is funny, imaginative, and, finally, very moving.” ★★★★★ – The Irish Times
