they have mutually created.


All of the studies carried out for going on this journey mean new encounters, new ideas and a basis for future productions for all the
participants. Representing the adılts to tomorrow, children get close endless possibilties that wait for them and adulta have the
opportunity to reconsider the notions of creativity, purity and participation which we require to servive.
