8 to 12 years
Lili chronicles in a sensitive and poetic manner a nine-year-old girl’s journey into adolescence.
The play touches both on everyday and crucial moments, alternating between fun times and more intimate moments. Lili’s games with her friends in the park or the secrets she shares are some of the happy episodes. At the same time, she discovers the exhilaration of falling in love. Yet, worries start interfering with her carefree attitude.
These drastic changes prompt her to take her first anxious yet excited steps into the world of adolescence. The stage, as unsteady as her inner space, begins to spin, turning into an ocean where a mermaid comes in and saves a ship tossing in the waves.
