Dance and music performance for the whole family " The King December"

"Childhood sometimes happens in the end of life. If you don't believe it, as The King December. By the way, you can ask him anything. You can lie in the balcony, look at the stars and talk about immortality. You can name clouds. You can study king's dream boxes. Or you can go out and see something you have never seen before..."

Every day Jovani, the office worker, goes to work on the same path, does mountains of paperwork, feels bored and sad, because his dream of flying the plane has never  come true. But suddenly the king December appears and the adventures begin.

The book of german author Axel Hacke and illustrator Michael Sowa "The Little King December" talks about not being able to see your fantasy world and a long way towards one's imagination. This book inspired the creators of the performance to talk about the importance of imagination and fantasies and invite children and their parents to find little kings within themselves.
