Peter: Forget them, Wendy. Forget them all. Come with me where you’ll never, never have to worry about grown up things again.

Wendy: Never is an awfully long time.

Choreographed by Anna Gaciarz, PETER PANS explores the syndrome of the same name, a generation of people who don’t want to grow up and who find it difficult to express love. Peter Pans – people with the body of an adult but the mind of a child…

Through movement and music we see human connections, how they are made, burn brightly, fall apart or just fade.

This debut performance by a physical theatre company, comprises of 3 male and 3 female performers with wildly different back-stories, complimentary skills and a tendency to crack up at tender, ‘sensitive’ moments. They are from Poland, Ireland and Uzbekistan. They are dancers (and stilt-walkers), office workers and visual artists; a certain generation of people who don’t want to grow up; a generation of Peter Pans.



Piotrus: Zapomnij o nich, Wendy! Zapomnij o nich wszystkich! Polec ze mna, a juz nigdy… przenigdy nie bedziesz musiala sie martwic dorastaniem…

Wendy: Nigdy to musi byc nieznosnie dlugi czas.

“PIOTRUS PAN” i “wieczna dziewczynka” to symbole niedojrzalosci naszych czasow. Nieodpowiedzialni, ciagle bujajacy w oblokach, pragnacy zabawy, zgorzkniale dzieci. Wystarczy im imitowanie wzorcow banalnej kultury, sa zadowoleni, jesli moga przezyc jakas ekstremalna przygode czy spontanicznie gdzies wyjechac. Nie mysla o przyszlosci, nie zadaja pytan, wola wieczna zabawe i zycie chwila. Boja sie realnego “tu i teraz”, unikaja zwiazkow i sytuacji, z ktorych trudno im sie bedzie uwolnic.

Wyobraz sobie eksperymentalna grupe teatralna i szesciu ludzi o calkiem roznych zapleczach artystycznych, a jednak uzupelniajacych sie w kluczowych momentach. Sa z Polski, z Irlandii i Uzbekistanu. Spotkali sie D-light Studios w Dublinie, miejscu tetniacym kulturalnym zyciem. Od razu znalezli swoja niesamowita „chemie”. Powstal zespol zlozony w polowie z mezczyzn, w polowie z kobiet – 50% Male Experimental Theatre. “Peter Pans” jest pierwszym owocem ich wspolpracy, kombinacja teatru fizycznego i technik tanca wspolczesnego.
