“We do change; we must. Except a little something in us no larger than a mote in the eye, that dances in front of us, beguiling us all our days. I cannot cut the hair by which it hangs…” – JM Barrie
Inside a frozen moment before childhood is lost forever, a man and a boy capture and dodge each other’s shadows, cleaving together, pulling apart, traversing the ghostly landscape of an abandoned Neverland. They hurl themselves into the sun, sliding in and out of unison, two drowned boys at the bottom of a pond, splitting and returning, refusing to stay still.
Hovering between dance and theatre, NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER is a portrait of the friendship between 35-year-old Aaron Orzech and 12-year-old Sol Feldman, unfolding through a dialogue between their bodies.
