Aitsona-Daitsona wants to celebrate its 5th Anniversary and the two finalist of their call “New Voices For Children Theatre” together with you. For five years now, Aitsona-Daitsona is bringing new emancipatory theatre plays for children to children all over Georgia and is running theatre workshops for children and educational professionals. Our aim is to establish and promote new emancipatory theatre for children and young people in Georgia as well as to create a platform for theatre and arts in education. We at Aitsona-Daitsona see theatre as a social event that can empower groups, bring people together and creates solidarity.
For our 5th Anniversary we made ourselves a very special birthday present. With the kind support of People In Need Georgia and in collaboration with LAG – Upper Svaneti and Towards New Opportunities Akhalkalaki, we started the call “New Voices For Children Theatre” and asked writers to create new plays for us in collaboration with children.
On Saturday the 11th of June, we invite you to celebrate our anniversary with us and award the two finalists of the call Alex Chigvinadze and Mariam Tchantchaleishvili, meet the Aitsona-Daitsona team, play with us, hear two readings of selected scenes from the two winning plays and talk to us about the future of children’s theatre.
14:00 – 15:30h Meet the actors and writers of Aitsona-Daitsona – there will be different theatre games and activities for children
15:30 – 17:00h Staged readings of scenes from Alex Chigvinadze’s new play “მზე შენია, ბარბოლ დოლაშ!” and Mariam Tchantchaleishivili’s new play “როცა გემი სანაპიროს მიუახლოვდა“, award ceremony and presentation of Aitsona-Daitsona’s work and the campaign “A Stage For Everyone” and “New Voices For Children’s Theatre”
We are looking forward to celebrating with you.
With kind support of People In Need Georgia
