A challenging premise
I'm currently working on a storytelling show called "Silaba" together with Betal Özyn (TU), Naomi Namutebi (UG) and Raphael Rodan (ISR). Silaba will premiere on the famous oerol festival in the North of the Netherlands and it's a project I'm very excited about.
In this show, my role will be to host the show, play music and here and there add some short stories mixed with my songs. I've been working with material from "the little prince" for this show and in order to write the opening monologue for the show I was given following direction from Raphael (the director): In the opening of the show, we want to ask our audience, how are you gonna look at this show? Are you gonna look at it like an adult or like a child?
With this as a premise, I felt the need of developing a deeper understanding to what it really meant to look at the world as an adult or a child and this lead me to the story of Lucy.
