SELECTED WORKSHOPS FOR FEP JUBILEE!
You love to read, but don't have someone with whom you could share your reading experience, and you're full of regular book analysis regarding topic, style, and motives, that you do at school? Excellent! You're on right place! You like to act, record, you visualize ideas? Excellent – this is a place for you! You're a gamer and games have gotten a little dull for you? Great – this is a place for you too! That place is Bačka Palanka, from 22nd until 25th of August, on FEP!
This is a description of only ONE out of TEN workshops that will be held on Festival of Ecological Theater for Children and Youth in Bačka Palanka. This year's motto is “With heart, and makeshift mind”.
On our jubilee, we will have 10 workshops:
1. Creative workshop “TastArtura” *(Wordplay combining words 'keyboard' and 'Art')
Development of computer technology is growing, leaving electronic garbage behind itself, in amount proportional to the speed of it's development. Using a share of that garbage, keyboard keys, we could make the smile of one of the greatest comedians – Charley Chaplin. Old keyboards become the mosaic that celebrates 130 years of birth of the famous actor, director, scenarist, rambler, who earned fame by imagination, stick and rope.
Workshop is held by Radoslav Karanović (Bačka Palanka, Serbia), architect from “PaArt” center for cultural, educational and artistic initiative.
Two-day workshop (Thu-Fri, 10 AM – 12 PM), age 6+
2. Creative, educational and ecological workshop “Make your time capsule”
If we could send a message to future, that would represent us or the whole planet Earth, what would that message be, and how to choose it? What is our planet like? Do we keep it well? What will stay on it after we are gone? How would we describe it to someone who won't see it like we do, and how to someone who has never been to it, and knows nothing about Earth? These are some questions with which we will deal while packing our “message in a bottle” and leave it for someone to find it in future.
Workshop is held by Tijana Grumić (Belgrade, Serbia), dramatist and drama writer, Olivia Furber (London, Great Britain), theater director, Ia Tanskanen (Finland), and Charlotte Boesling (Gisen, Germany), student of master studies of applied theater.
