Image <P>'Peter Pan': In-Flight Creativity - Lisa Traiger interviews Septimus Weber as a preview to his new full length work for Washington Ballet. <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Never mind the image of a tortured dance artist working alone in a mirrored studio devising new steps for an upcoming world premiere ballet. That's not how Septime Webre choreographs. Webre, artistic director of the Washington Ballet, just completed choreographing a brand-new, full-length family ballet, "Peter Pan." But there were no endless nights alone for Webre.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR> <A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A10177-2001Jan31.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A10177-2001Jan31.html</A>
