By James Matthew Barrie, German version by Erich Kästner
Robert Wilson and CocoRosie
Robert Wilson has staged Peter Pan as a musical tale for adults, where humor is mixed with fear. The text is based on Erich Kästner’s German version of J. M. Barrie’s story, where Peter Pan appears more like a David Bowie type than like a chubby little boy. Featuring original songs and music by the Brooklyn-and-Paris-based "freak folk" band CocoRosie, this production has been playing successfully in the Berliner Ensemble's repertoire, as well as on several international tours.
