Robin Hood is a legendary story about a heroic outlaw and highly skilled archer who stole from the rich to help the poor. Robin Hood lived in the forest, hunting and living with his fellow outlaws. He stood up against—and frequently outwitted—people in power and bravely came to the assistance of those in need. Robin Hood’s friendship with his best friend, Little John and his taboo romantic relationship with Maid Marian encapsulate themes of trust, care and reveal that love can conquer all inequities in social status. Focus on Maid Marian’s resistance to the status quo and rebellion against a traditional woman’s role of the era will also bring about relevant themes of women’s equality.
FBP’s production of Robin Hood will be a fun and educational experience for all ages. With bouts of humor, exciting fight scenes and a little romance, our retelling of Robin Hood will highlight the importance of teamwork, equity, kindness, sharing and justice for all. Historical contexts within the music score and social dance motifs are extracted from the 1100s-1500s, when the story of Robin Hood was adapted and re-adapted. With a narrator as the focal point along with recorded music from the Middle Ages, instrumental compositions from Africa and the Middle East, our Robin Hood is a story ballet deconstructed and re-imaged.
