The Wolf and Peter
Time: 11am & 7pm
Presented by: CoisCéim Dance Theatre
Prokofiev’s PETER AND THE WOLF is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written. The award-winning CoisCéim Dance Theatre brings this timeless story of courage and imagination to the stage this autumn. And this time... the story is told through the eyes of the WOLF. Filled with dance, puppetry and live music, this fun and richly theatrical adaptation by David Bolger brings the classic characters Bird, Cat, Duck, Grandfather, Hunters, Peter, and of course the WOLF to life. The extraordinary pianist Conor Linehan will play both the classic score and his own new compositions live on stage. THE WOLF AND PETER will take children and their families on a thrilling adventure to explore and discover contemporary dance and performance at its best.
AFTER SHOW (11AM SHOW ONLY): Directly following the performance of THE WOLF AND PETER, the audience will be invited to meet the different characters from the story, and get to ask any questions they might have about the show. The cast will then guide the audience through some of the key movement sequences from the performance, where the children will be able to explore and practice some of the choreographic interpretation in lively, fun and interactive way.
