Adaptation by Erich Kästner, based on the novel by James M. Barrie
Premiered on April 17, 2013 at the Berliner Ensemble, Berlin, Germany
Robert Wilson staged Peter Pan as a musical tale for adults, where humor is mixed with fear. He adapts Erich Kästner’s version of James 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.
