Lie down, make yourselves comfortable, and see what’s about to happen. Together, we’re going to enter the soft and cosy world of the big duvet with its countless secrets and mysteries. It’s a place where everyone feels safe and relaxed. Let’s find out what the magical moment just before falling asleep can bring. ‘Sleep’ is a story about how the seemingly uninteresting activity of going to sleep can be both inspirational and surprising. In this play, ordinary activities are depicted in an extraordinary way, allowing spectators to see and explore the world with the inquisitiveness and curiosity typical of a newborn baby.
‘Sleep’ was created with our youngest spectators in mind (recommended viewing age: 0 to 3 years old). We have prepared a safe, cosy and comfortable space tailored to young children’s needs so that they can feel at ease and actively participate in the show. One of the main goals of ‘Sleep’ is to stimulate and develop children’s imagination and creativity. Interaction and spontaneity of the audience are more than welcome throughout the show.
Our performers are there to encourage children’s expression rather than limiting it. Everyone, no matter the age, will feel nice and cosy during the play thanks to the actors’ openness to the audience’s spontaneous reactions. Live acoustic music and low-key lighting also contribute to creating a relaxed, pillow-like atmosphere. The structure of the play is open, and the fun could never end, especially if the parents are willing to continue playing the presented games with their little ones at home.
