In his latest show Now I Am Almost 6, Matija Ferlin aims to explore the mind of a child that is not conditioned by anything, even its own existence.

While growing up, self-awareness generates numerous frightening facts that stem from social conditioning and disciplining. All the imaginary characters from our childhood become enemies. The fact that we have to grow up leads to imperfections, which render our lives and modes of existence unique and individual.
