Russia, Sweden, Slovenia, Belgium, Finland, Poland, the Netherlands, Austria and Germany: we meet actors from all of these countries, dreaming of a world without borders in Antú Romero Nunes’ Neverland Project.
To fall out of the stroller, not wanting to grow up, living in community, learning how to fly and the fear of the ticking crocodile. This re-working of the story of the boy who doesn’t want to grow up tells of a world in which young people set out on their own path to seek a new existence beyond traditions and family ties: they find replacement families among like-minded people, speak different languages but can still understand each other. They are spoiled and scruffy, they are their own bosses, they have shredded their biographies and are looking for new, non-traditional values and ideals.
Inspired by themes from J.M. Barrie’s ‘Peter Pan’, this international co-production between three theatres and six drama schools sees a multi-lingual ensemble playing, dancing and singing their story about nations living and working together. With their mixture of languages they compose a song for the world.
