SLOW DOWN! is an appeal launched to a world that is so hurried that it no longer finds time to listen. SLOW DOWN! is a thought transmitted from mind to mind, from soul to soul, in this uninterrupted DNA of humanity, of which we are all a part, regardless of color, gender, age, abilities or disabilities, or what we call "special needs". The event-performance SLOW DOWN! is the too rare and too little heard story of normalcy as it appears for children with disabilities and their families, told for the first time by actors and children together, directed by Horia Suru.
SLOW DOWN! by Mihaela Michailov is the title of the play that concludes the Children's Future project, part of the Voices of the City route, which the National Theatre started four years ago with the desire to offer vulnerable groups a space that integrates them into the cultural and civic flow of the community.
