The Wolf and Peter Screening, 1pm

The wolf is coming!
Told through the eyes of the wolf, this energetic work from internationally acclaimed CoisCéim Dance Theatre explores themes of courage and imagination, and showcases contemporary dance at its best.
A fun and richly theatrical production, The Wolf and Peter will inspire questions about how different perspectives can shape stories, and show how character journeys can be depicted through movement and dance.

"Reassuringly traditional and startlingly modern…The Wolf and Peter is funny, imaginative, and, finally, very moving.”—The Irish Times, five-star review
This recording of The Wolf and Peter was filmed at Sydney Opera House and live streamed to 21 schools in New South Wales on July 20, 2017. It was first screened in Ireland on April 2, 2020, as part of CoisCéim’s SOFA CINEMA series.
