“Dance for an object and child” is about the relationship with an idea of a child, with a dance, and the creative process when one is in quest of a meaning, of truthfulness, as well as attempts to survive the daily routine of creation and life.
The authors of the play raise questions about unquestionable norms in regards to having children, expecting them, giving birth, as well as not wanting or not being able to have children. All of us one way or another face the issue of having a child, and no matter what is our decision we feel obliged to justify it.
