OCTOBER 2014:

“GREEN” PUPPETRY

Our school wears a title “A cultural school”. One of the reasons for this title is a rich tradition in drama and puppetry activities.

Puppetry and drama club for our younger children (6 – 1o years) is always somehow related to “eco” or “green” theme. For the production of play, titled “Animals olympics” (by slovenian author Svetlana Makarovič), our young puppet masters made their puppets out of old and used clothes.

Puppets were saved and we are still using them for short improvisational tasks. In the begining of this year, our new puppetry and drama students got the task to make up a “green-themed” short play, using these eco puppets. They made up (and performed infront of their class) a story of animals, who are searching for clean and safe food in littered nature.  The animals had to fight for it with “A HUMAN”.

Our  story had a happy ending, but it made us all think: will the story of real animals and littered nature have a happy ending too?
