An intimate and imaginative multimedia experience that puts children in charge of the storytelling.
Listen closely—a child is speaking. In a multimedia experience that has captivated communities around the world, you sit blindfolded in a darkened cinema; behind you, a row of children, ages 9 to 12, stand ready. An original film, sans dialogue, comes up on the screen, and the children describe it in whispers to the adults, their collaborators in the fascinating act of putting pictures into words and vice versa. In a world in which children still are more often seen than heard, European theatermaker Britt Hatzius puts them in charge of the story.
