18 Monkeys Dance Theatre
22 - 25.09.2016
Red Peter is a live dance performance inspired by Franz Kafka’s Ein Berich An Eine Akademi, in which the protagonist Red Peter, a monkey, describes his loss of true freedom in the midst of gaining acceptance and recognition in the human world. In choreographing the performance, 18 Monkeys Dance Theatre’s director and house choreographer Jim Chompee draws from the protagonist’s journey in learning how to behave like a human. Chompee blends together a mixture of contemporary and Thai traditional dance to create a show which explores the concepts of animalism, absurdity and evolution.
