In dreamland, fantasy is given free rein. Sleep can lead to beautiful stories. Take a night trip with Sribi Switi to the land of the imagination, where figures turn into characters you can only dream of.

Two hip-hop dancers and a beatboxer take you on a night trip. By means of hip-hop dance styles such as popping, waving, tutting and robotics, the dancers in this performance create a new world of illusion. Nothing is what it seems, but everything is beautiful and pleasing. Colors, sound and characters change to the same rhythm as the seasons and come to life in a fantasy world where everything seems to float.

Sribi Switi (Surinamese for 'sleep well') is an adaptation of the successful French children's show A Deux Mains.
