Young Met director Farnaz Arbabi believe that children are the group in society who have the least power over their own lives. This substance she wants to do a bustling, magnificent show that will meet the children at eye level.
”For that I say it,” is the simple title on the piece, just the one where the föräldrarepliken, ”I should not have to explain myself to you, I am an adult”.
" this is about how children handle a world where they do not get to decide. I am interested in maktrelationen between adults and children, " says Farnaz Arbabi.
