Based on motifs from the short story by Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens is best known as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era, less as an author of short stories. The story Dream of a Star (A Child's Dream of a Star, 1850) was inspired by the loss of the writer's sister. Profound experience of the death of loved one, which is not spared to anyone, is depicted in the story of the main character when he is faced with the death of the sister and mother. However, Dickens transforms it into beautiful story about transcendence, about a star, where
everybody is headed to and where we will meet our loved ones once again. With this performance we are going back in time, but we are talking about universal questions about the beginning and the end of everything that is alive. We are looking for answers to these fundamental questions since our early childhood, the time in our lives when we wonder about everything what surrounds us, until the moment we leave this world. Only the form of questions and answers is changing through the life
cycle. Art offers very diverse depictions, not only as answers but also in form of clues, premonitions and it asks new questions. Sometimes on a seemingly simple way, which is full of beauty and poetic truth; both children and adults understand and feel this.
