The King December

Childhood sometimes happens at the end of life.  If you don’t believe this, ask 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, study King’s dream boxes, or you can go out and see something you have never seen before.

Everyday Jovani, the office worker, goes to work taking the same route every morning, working on  mountains of paperwork, feeling sad and bored that his dream of flying an airplane has never come true. But suddenly King December appears and the adventures begin. Based on the book by the German author Axel Hacke and illustrator Michael Sowa, The Little King December talks about not being able to see your fantasy world or the long way towards one’s imagination. This book inspired the creators of the performance to talk about the importance of imagination and dreams and invite children and their parents to find little kings within themselves.
