Given Monkeyhouse's current theme of Misplaced/Displaced, we were delighted to discover that our dear friend Eva Dean is adapting Peter Pan for Prospect Park's Zucker Natural Exploration Area in Brooklyn. The performances are FREE so hustle over and get ready to swashbuckle!
Linda Leseman from the Village Voice declared that Eva Dean Dance's Peter Pan and Stardust Dances was "a joy from start to finish." when it premiered at the 2013 FringeNYC. I am confident that there will be dozens of moments to love this new version too. Peter Pan and the Pirates is an immersive dance theater event that features Peter Pan vanquishing Captain Hook and his Pirates with the help of the brave Princess Tiger Lily, and the fierce crocodile.
Eva Dean Dance has performed in many of New York City's finest venues including The New York International Fringe Festival, Brooklyn Museum, Dance Theater Workshop, and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The company has also performed nationally in the USA and internationally in Dubai, Amsterdam, Prague, and Berlin. Eva Dean Dance's body of work has received awards, most notably Best of Fringe New York in the Amsterdam Fringe Festival, and for its site-specific dances in Brooklyn.
