A new and quite uncouth misinterpretation of the classic moralizing picture-book, titled “Struwwelpeter” in the 1854 German original, and known as “Den Store Bastian” (The Great Bastian) in Danish.
A larger-than life, visually exciting, wordless yet rather loud experience for both good and bad children and adults.
In Slovenly Peter, we experience children, when they are at their best: obedient, clean – and completely without scruples. The idea of the well-raised child is turned on its head, and the goody-goods’ innocent play with the adults’ rulesbecomes absurd, comic, and even (a little) frightening. Fire is played with and scissors run with, in a enlarged, charged world with equal amounts of good laughs and eye-popping chills.
