"If a person can't read or write, you don't assume that this person is incapable of it, just that he or she hasn't learned how to do it. The same is true of creativity. When people say they're not creative, it's often because they don't know what's involved or how creativity works in practice." wrote Sir Ken Robinson in his book THE ELEMENT. Hopefully, this site can open a door for parents, teachers and our beloved children.
Show recommendation April 2011 - Czech Puppetry
If you ever make a trip to Eastern Europe, Prague is a city you cannot miss. I love the city - from its castle to its wooden toys, and of course their famous puppet theatre! When you walk down any street in prague, you can see a little shops that sell marionettes, like the one below:
My favorite puppet shop Prague (2009)
Inside the shop - many different kinds of marionettes/puppets!
Puppet theatre has a long history in Czech culture. Watching a puppet show in Prague was an exciting experience for me; I'm sure children will feel the same way!
In April 2011, a group of famous puppeteers from North Czech Republic, Naïve Theatre Liberec, will bring this fascinating form of theatre art to Hong Kong. They will be putting on 3 performances of Alibaba and 40 Thieves, between 7-9 April in HK City Hall and Shatin Town Hall. The performance is suitable for children 6+.
