When do we become adults? When do we let go of our dreams and accept our place in reality? What does it mean to be a young girl in a world increasingly demanding children simulate adults? We have researched these questions, which resulted in “Dream on, baby”, a performance in the borderland between child and adult, dreams and reality.
