We invite children to the world of imagination. Our place will turn into an area for having great fun. On this day, Nowy Teatr will become Neverland.
Along with Spotlight Kids, we invite everyone to all-day creative workshops with artists and educators combing visual arts with philosophy, literature, design and, of course, theatre.
On 4 June, in the yard in front of Nowy Teatr we will squint our eyes to imagine anything we want. We will look through a keyhole, which may be very small, but reveals colourful secrets and magical stories like nothing else. Because every story can be magical and there can always be someone behind every colourful dot. We will check how many new worlds can emerge at Nowy Teatr. We will go beyond the boundaries of imagination and travel to a whole new magical reality full of new impressions.
Spotlight Kids is a platform for promoting contemporary art. Art is a way of telling the world about yourself. Artists express themselves consciously, while children do it intuitively. The aim of Spotlight Kids is to encourage the little ones to express their feelings and impressions so that they will not be afraid of new experiences and know that everyone, no matter how different from us, has something interesting to say.
All they long, we invite everyone to the creative games area where, apart from the hand-painting zone, you will find open workshops:
11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. It got a bit windy – creating moving compositions swayed slightly by the wind;
01:15 p.m. – 02:45 p.m. Who are you? Today you can be anyone you want – making masks;
03:15 p.m. – 04:45 p.m. How does the Neverland look like and where it is located? – creating your very own land on a large piece of paper.
Moreover, the programme includes:
11:30 a.m. – 01:00 p.m. – Hirameki, draw what you see – Karolina Rodanowicz
Hirameki is a technique consisting in creating random colourful stains and discovering shapes, characters and even whole stories hidden in them. Apart from drawing, we will also learn how to create imaginative characters brought to life thanks to our imagination. A workshop for children of any age.
01:30 p.m. – 02:30 p.m. And what if I never became an adult? – Agnieszka Sinicka
