In the musical "The Child Behind the Eyes" a mother observes her disabled son who suffers from Down syndrome and tries to protect him from the hardship and cruelty that awaits him. This musical is a journey into a family who struggles with pain, ignorance and fears. Throughout the musical, the child with the Down syndrome, YOTAM, innocent and open-hearted, becomes a source of love to all members of the family. In fact, he is the one who teaches them all a new meaning of the joy of life. The musical “Behind the Eyes” is a special production, which offers a delicate dialogue between text, movement and sound. Alongside the sensitive text presented by the new-shining actress Eda Kandulu as the mother, this stage adaptation is accompanied by 4 acoustic musicians led by the famous Turkish singer Özgün Uğurlu.
