A child’s eyes are always wide, and when the time to sleep comes, they get wider!

As the light is being switched off, a child turns on his imagination. Stories start to unfold, made of shapes and shadows, and new games are being invented in this hour of mystery and wonder. And the child ends up falling asleep in a cool submarine, under the water or in a hot air balloon, above colorful hills and magically wakes up in his bed.

While exploring that very special moments of childhood, between saying Good night and actually sleeping, the artistic team of the performance, searches for new ways of playing and discovering the world.

Sleepy Little Pillow talks about perceptions, images, feelings and the wellspring of new games that lies in every small spectator.
