Children of the World

A real-time creation which invites the audience on an intimate, unique journey through a country, a city, its young and youth.

A writer and a photographer travel to a foreign city to meet children and teenagers. The writer works on a text; an echo of what has been shared, of what has remained unspoken, to probe any shyness and explore the subtext. The text, photographs, and certain sounds recorded, form the basis of a live performance. A traditional dish from the country is prepared during the reading and served at the end to conclude the performance. Writing, photography, sound and cooking all contribute to the story.
