Join us for a street theatre performance followed by a hands-on workshop. Inspired by the 12th-century Japanese storytelling technique kamashibai, children will experience a live outdoor visual performance which recounts the stories of Geha as well as Abla and Antar. Following the performance, the creative duo Junk Munkez will lead a workshop where kids will make their own mobile paper theatre using upcycled materials. Participants will be able to take their project home.
This workshop is programmed in conjunction with the exhibition Les Mondes de Willy Aractingi.
