«I love Grieg because his mixture of folk music and lyrical moments appeals to me. I can hear the history behind the music. Peer dreams of the big city and finds himself in a dance studio where a rehearsal is taking place. [...] And then he is discovered and designs his own great choreography for the big stage. For me, the key theme in ‹Peer Gynt› is the central character’s search for himself.»
