Winner of the RNCM Creative Innovators Award, Healing Our Child Within transforms the real, vulnerable childhood stories into animation film and live music.
Featuring the laureate of the 2017 Zachodniopomorski Chopin Competition and the winner of the National Cello Competition, guest pianist Roksana Dabkowska and cellist FangNing Dong take us on an intimately ruminative and healing journey with Chopin’s music.

“Your actions and words hurt me when I was young.”
He finally plucked up the courage and blurted out the lines.
He didn’t want an apology. He just wanted to get closer to him. To reconcile the distant relationship he and his dad always had.
“Are you crazy? Be grateful for what you’ve got! ”
“I hope I’m not born into this family!”
Deeply wounded, he left. The inner child who was once hopeful for love, never wanted to be seen or heard again.
We all have a broken part of us that longs to belong and to be healed.
