Teaching circle
2017 / Budapest / performance

I discovered a small amphitheater in the corner of a playground. The place should have been probably made for children’s spontaneous plays, but I’ve never seen any kid playing there. It seemed to me that kids can’t find any idea how to use this place. The place reminded me a famous children’s book “Momo" written by Michael Ende where amphitheater plays an important role in the story. A main character, little girl Momo lives in this abandoned theatre which - thanks to her - comes alive once again. The amphitheater becomes a place for problem solving, theater improvisation, place where Momo experiences solidarity from citizens of her city and finally a place where kids dive into absorbing (social) games.

I decided to play there a series of games made for children of lower school age with my friends. All of the games were intended to play in a circle.
