“Creative meetings with education” is a project directed to the 5-10 old-year spectators. Each meeting is made up of an interactive performance and thematic workshops. Inviting to the show is the JaHa Duo, or Hanna Kochańska and Jacek Zawada – actors, singers, trainers of children’s creativity, directors and producers.
The first educational project (performance+workshops) staged as part of the cycle is entitled:
A HEALTHY SPIRIT IN A HEALTHY BODY!
What is the performance about?
A Greek goddess Nike tries to persuade Grześ Łakomczuch (Grześ the Foodie) and all the spectators that an appropriate diet and sport help to take care of health and well-being, whereas honest competition is a perfect step towards making great friendships. We will take the spectators on a journey to the world of delicious vegetables and fruit, the world of healthy eating and favourite sports. We will prove all doubters that this world doesn’t have to be boring! And we will do this with the help of Mr. Cheeseburger! After the performance we invite you to the sports-nutrition workshops that – through amusement – will get the spectators acquainted with a set of exercises and dietary advice prepared by our experts. After all, a healthy spirit in a healthy body!
