Pippi Longstocking : A Story in Dance


  • Gas Station Arts Centre 455 River Ave Winnipeg, MB, R3L Canada (map)

*Pippi Longstocking* is a strong, adventurous girl who dances her way
through life. Having lost her mother when she was an infant and her father
currently lost at sea, Pippi lives in a house with no grownups, a horse and
a monkey. A resourceful and unconventional girl, Pippi’s imagination and
flair for adventure leads to one adventure after another. She is strong
enough to lift a horse, she is a “Thing-Finder”, confounds two burglars
with dancing lessons, celebrates her birthday and opens the eyes of friends and neighbors Tommy and Annika to remarkable new possibilities.

It is a story that speaks of courage, acceptance, individuality, passion,
creativity, the flow of being and reveling in our identity and capacity to
act. And it is good, plain fun.

*Pippi Longstocking: A Story in Dance* is a dance production inspired by
the collected stories of Pippi Longstocking, written by Astrid Lindgren.
