BIBIANA, 1. poschodie
Although we deem Japanese fairytales to be rather exotic, those are in many ways similar to the tales of other nations e.g. the popular Japanese tale "Peach-boy" is rather similar to "Tom Thumb". Its film-version is supposed to demonstrate in our exhibition the "supernatural hero"-theme. Other themes comprise: Amazing places (represented by the fairytale The Mysterious Pub), good and bad properties (by the tale About the Miraculous Bamboo Blossom) and tales and legends on animals ("The Grateful Fox"). In the individual rooms dedicated to those themes, the kids may view also other Japanese film-tales created by renowned European artists. Young and old will get to know this beautiful country, its arts, language and script through the exhibited books, but they will also learn something about traditional food, the tea-ceremony or origami – i.e. the art of (from) paper. The unique creative setting of the exhibition, inspired by Japanese arts — creates a very special atmosphere. In this way, the kids will learn something new and have fun & entertainment in creating their very own origami-works, trying Japanese pronunciation and numerous other activities, which they can find in this interactive exhibition.
Theme and script – M. Mertová, design-space-solution – M. Dubravay, dramaturgy – V. Marákyová.
