Pete: A New Dance Musical

Originally developed, produced, and premiered by Dark Circles Contemporary Dance with support from the TACA New Works Fund

Conceived and directed by internationally award-winning choreographer Joshua L. Peugh, this original musical is inspired by J. M. Barrie’s iconic novel Peter Pan. Responding to the narrative of the classic story, Pete: A New Dance Musical takes an adventurous, playful, and creative approach to not only explore the intersecting themes of childhood, freedom, and mortality, but to reflect on the concept of race, the political impulse to define it, and the systemic inequities that, as a result of this definition, affect the way we perceive and experience the world.
