“The childhood sometimes appears at the end of life. If you do not believe, you may ask the little King December about it. By the way, you may ask him everything. You may lie with him at the balcony, look at the stars and discuss about the immortality. It is possible to give names for the clouds. It is possible to examine little boxes where the king keeps his dreams. Or just go out and see something that you have not seen before“, – that is written in the book „The Little King December“ by Axel Hacke and Michael Sowa. This book inspired the birth of music and dance performance for the whole family named “King December”. This performance discusses about the importance of fantasy and imagination what is extremely important today because of the new generation influenced by the latest technologies. Main roles in the performance directed by choreographer Agnija Šeiko were entrusted to the dancer Marius Pinigis and actor Petras Lisauskas. At the stage of Klaipėda Concert Hall video projections made by Rimas Sakalauskas will create the city of unrealistic fantasy whose residents will be impersonated by performers of Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra. Conversations, stories and unexpected views will cultivate children's fantasy as well as provoke them to interpret and create stories by themselves.
