We conceived this production using storytelling and visual theatre tropes. The three performers played many roles, the other children were imagined with sunflowers and pairs of shoes. Staged in traverse, the audience were given a luggage tag with the bill of the Rights of the Child, and some sunflower seeds as they left.
