“Pstryk!” to warsztaty stworzone specjalnie dla Mother Tongues, które będą badać polskie onomatopeje (pstryki, skrzypy, grzmoty i pluski!), zainspirowane wielosensorycznym teatrem Kasi “Little Dream” i nasycone magią polskich baśni. Zaprojektowane z myślą o dzieciach w wieku 3-6 lat, “Pstryk!” ma na celu stworzenie immersyjnej i wyobraźniowej przestrzeni, w której młodzi uczestnicy mogą zanurzyć się w krainy snów i koszmarów. Poprzez holistyczne podejście, warsztaty obejmują Kreatywny Ruch, Kreatywny Głos, Opowiadanie inspirowane polskim folklorem oraz Sound Bath, aby wprowadzić dzieci w magiczny świat dźwięków. “Pstryk!” wspiera kreatywność, wyrażanie siebie, pracę zespołową oraz odkrywanie fascynacji.
In “Pstryk!”, we will explore Polish onomatopeias (pstryki, skrzypy, grzmoty i pluski!) inspired by Kasia’s multisensory theatre “Little Dream”, and infused with the magic of Polish fairytales. Designed for children aged 3-6, “Pstryk!” seeks to create an immersive and imaginative space where young participants can delve into the realms of dreams and nightmares. Through a holistic approach, the workshop includes Creative Movement, Creative Voice, Storytelling drawing inspiration from Polish folklore, and Sound Healing to introduce children to the magical world of sounds. “Pstryk!” encourages creativity, self-expression, teamwork and a sense of wonder. Led by Kasia Eliasz and joined by Maciej Blizinski on Double Bass.
