NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER Comes to Arts House – North Melbourne Town Hall in November

NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER captures a moment before childhood is lost forever.

Hovering between dance and theatre, NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER is a portrait of a friendship that unfolds between two physically different bodies.

Devised over five years between 36-year-old Aaron Orzech and 13-year-old Sol Feldman, this new work looks at the fleetingness of childhood. It shows a man and a boy dodging each other's shadows and refusing to stay still - they slide in and out of unison, pull apart and traverse the ghostly landscape of an abandoned Neverland.

Years ago, someone noticed a strange resemblance between Orzech and Feldman and joked they should create a work where they each played a version of the other. That was the beginning of this special collaboration.

"As we've collaborated over a long period, our connection and understanding for each other has grown stronger. Ultimately, we've made a work that is centred on our friendship that looks at boyhood and never growing up," said Orzech.

"We've created something full of energy, movement, fun, action, excitement and sadness. We've also been inspired by the fantasy of Peter Pan, its author J M Barrie and the loss of his brother who died while ice-skating," explained Feldman.

NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER playfully explores the taboo relationships between adults and children as well as manhood and boyhood.
