On Dreams and Childhood

“The magic of sleep: a person is sleeping, it’s a child,
and a sleeping child is the essence of childhood.”

In the current global reality, it is easy to be caught up by the political imagery and moral code that this text opens up. The human flow of the refugee crisis around the world has offered graphic images and moral dilemmas for continents, states and individuals – how should one react to this reality? What is the true motive for reaching out and what is the price for doing so?

All of those questions have driven us to choose this play, at this time for this city.

The deeper you dive into Levin’s words the further you distant yourself from those questions. It is almost easy to forget that this play is about a dream. And about a child who dreams this dream.

Who is this child? And why is he dreaming this dream?

The concrete imagery of Levin text, the cruel reality that has been explored in this journey gets an infinite face through the lenses of a dream.

The self and the outside reality blend together – dream and awakeness merge.

“I have had a dream – past the wit of man to say what dream it was. Man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream” (Midsummer Night’s Dream: W. Shakespeare).
