In the play, the main aim of Doron and the artistic team is to get the audience into a dreamlike state. So he uses live video as the lens of the child so the audience can see his dream through the video.

He adds that the most challenging part of directing the play is to find a way to portray its powerful words.

"When you read the play for the first time, it seems like everything is being said, that there is nothing hidden. It's like a dream, where everything is being put out with beautiful poetry. So, how do you turn this poetry into drama, into conflict, and into life?"

The Child Dreams is the first time Doron is working with a Levin script, though it's his fourth directorial production.

Levin, one of the most original and most innovative writers of his generation, wrote plays, sketches, songs, stories and poetry, and directed most of his own plays. He died of cancer at the age of 55 in 1999, leaving 56 plays, two books of prose, two collections of sketches and songs, a book of poems and two books for children.
