Participatory theatre for youth

Age group: Kid

Duration: 120 minutes

Topic

Aunt Gitta’s mission is to give her classes as much support as possible to break out from their underprivileged community. Now she invites a special guest to her class, Sebi, a former pupil of hers who has gone on to build a successful career as a cage fighter. However, Sebi’s arrival is not welcomed by everyone, including Mario, who 12 years ago experienced first-hand the consequences of a lack of impulse-control.

Form and duration

Length of the programme: 120 minutes

Our complex theatre education programme is designed for students ages 13-14 with a particular focus on reaching out to disadvantaged communities. In choosing the theme, we have also drawn on teachers who test themselves on the most difficult terrain every day. The presentation aims to provide tangible help to overcome problems of impulse-control by getting students to play an active role. In addition to the theatrical experience, students can learn about and practice Nonviolent Communication and Crisis Intervention – because it is not enough to know that violence is bad: what really matters in a crisis is whether we have an alternative and how easily we can call upon it when we need it.

Venue and capacity

The premiere took place in Budapest, 2022. It is played primarily in schools. Maximum number of viewer-participants is 30. The production may be invited by schools, community centres and theatres.
