Can we talk to the children about what it’s like to be lonely and rejected?
If so, when, and how to speak to them about it?
One day a family of ducks, one after another, are born tiny, beautifully yellow chicks… but one of them looks completely different …
Will it be okay with his strange appearance? Will everyone on the farm take it without asking? Whether Ugly Duckling will find his friends at all? What will happen to him later? Puppetry will tell you this beautiful story.
ANNA GUZIK, ANNA ZADĘCKA–ZIĘBA, FONDATION – OH GUSTAV! ŁÓDŹ, REPUBLIC OF POLAND
Foundation of Creation and Promotion of Art – oh Gustav! existed since 2011 in Poland.
After many years of work in big state theatre, they decided to go closer to their audience. Now they work with children in small villages, poverty districts, hospitals and other difficult places. They go to the children with original theatre performances, workshops and other events. They believe that culture and art are essential and can change human life, and that each child deserves such change.
More than 30 social and cultural projects iwere completed in their city’s public space.
They carried out our performances and artistic workshops in over 200 of Polish smallest towns and villages, reaching people with limited cultural access.
Foundation – oh Gustav! means – professionalism, energy, creativity and passion for creating and promoting culture and art.
This programme is supported in part by Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
