INFORMATION ON PROGRAMS

EMOTIONS - WORKSHOPS
Workshops for pre-school children as well as primary and secondary school students, guided by psychologists or artists are accompanying events to the exhibition. The exhibition Emotions presents the world of our emotions the way we know and do not know them. For that reason the workshops have been designed for activities with materials as well as psychological games and assignments corresponding to the age groups of children/students who are enrolled in the workshops. Every activity starts with a situation for experiencing emotions that should draw from the selected theme. Children will make their “emotions exchange”, “emotions clock“, “garden of emotions” and “lanterns for various moods” and more.
Idea – I. Abrahamfyová, workshops guided by – T. Hríbik
(For children older than 5 years)

OSMIJANKO’S SWEET STORIES
Marzipan lions, a pot full of jam, a gigantic strudel and pudding the size of an average cook – they all have a common denominator, Osmijanko. Originally Osmijanko was a radio show character but the principle of “sensible nonsense” and ridiculing the world of the adults brought him from paper to stage. Osmijanko’s Four Sweet Stories by Krista Bendova will be staged by students of the Puppet Department, Academy of Arts.

WHERE HAVE THE SPRITES GONE?
A theatre show on motifs from the book Magdalenka and the Sprites by Libuše Friedova. Unusual meetings give Magdalenka lots of surprises. The audience alongside Magdalenka gradually finds the sprites who are all around to make sure things of everyday use work well.

EMOTIONS
