The jubilee edition of the „Dziecinada”International Children's Festival will commence on 28 September, and it will include a whole day of theatrical events and outdoor fun.
Great news for small and big theatre lovers – the Foundation for Supporting Alternative and Ecological Cultures /The Puppet Clinic Theatre and Culture Zone Wrocław invite you to the next edition of the ,,Dziecinada” festival in Wrocław. This year’s Festival will take place in as many as five locations: Impart Centrum, Centrum na Przedmieściu, Teatr Polski – Świebodzki Stage, Firlej and the Depot History Centre, where an open-air day is planned on 30 September. On the square at Grabiszyńska Street, at the location of the old bus depot, a very magical village will be built especially for festival participants, full of attractions, workshops, and performances. At the turn of September and October, theatre troupes from various parts of Europe will once again come to Wrocław to take part in the 10th edition of the “Dziecinada” International Children’s Theatre Festival. This year, Wrocław will be visited by artists from Italy, Finland, Lithuania and Slovakia. We also planned a Dutch Day, says Wiktoria Wiktorczyk, the producer of the festival.
During the outdoor event at the Depot History Centre, the participants will be invited to the „FrikArt” Circus Town for many hours of fun, which shapes character, develops dexterity, passion and creativity. They will discover circus disciplines, e.g. in the zone of giant soap bubbles, on a structure for walking on a tightrope, while learning juggling or walking on stilts. Also available will be games of skill bringing entire families closer together. The Vertykalna Acrobatics Centre will invite you to see the story of „The Little Prince”, full of wonderful artists, delightful choreographies and unforgettable experiences – a story about growing up and discovering your inner child, which adults too often neglect. The Pinezka Theatre will give us an ecology lesson in the comedy performance „Old Clown and the Sea”, during which – apart from providing some good laughter – they will teach the audience that garbage should not be thrown into the sea. „The Atumn Time” programme of the Kukaj Kukawko is, in turn, a meeting with nature, involving the audience in games, sensitising them to the sounds of nature, where by playing, jumping, dancing and singing, they will try to catch a drop of rain or visit a forest. The Chrząszcz w Trzcinie Theater will also touch the subject of ecology, which will prevent the spectators from having fun; their performance „Plum and Bulb, or problems with water” deals with the dangers of improper land and waste management. The program also includes the „Kickstart” show by the Arctic Ensemble circus troupe. This spectacle based on Finnish culture captivates everyone with its warm atmosphere – from children to the elderly – and excellent acrobatic skills keep the audience on the edge of their seats. There will also be a concert by Kapela Timingeriu, whose artists play and sing lively, dance-provoking interpretations of Gypsy, Balkan and Jewish music. And finally, with the Klinika Lalek Theatre, the hosts of the Dziecinada festival, the audience will embark on another journey and sail to the stars during „Gulliver’s Space Adventures”.
These are still not all of the attractions, as during the outdoor day there will also be workshops, games and animations for children and adults organised by the festival’s partners. The ticket price includes the „Wrocław 1945-2016” interactive exhibition at the Depot History Centre. Sisters in the game will conduct board game workshops. Planet of Robots will invite you to the creative LEGO building zone with fluffy mascots, colourful pouffes, a remote-control train and huge boxes full of bricks. In the Parent-leader space, children will find creative ideas for games which will help them get to know themselves better. These are just some of the attractions. The outdoor area will be open from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
