‘Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself’. Inspired by Kahlil Gibran’s On Parenting, this experimental piece is created by children that poetically staged their thoughts on intergenerational misunderstandings. With their personalities ignored, Chinese children seldom have the freedom to make their own choices and are struggling to pursue their life dreams. After premiering in Yinchuan, this production has been well received by local audiences and children’s parents who gave much positive feedback after deep self-examinations.
