ФЕСТИВАЛЪТ - THE FESTIVAL
These hand puppets, that were made in Bulgaria for my training session in puppetry, opened the Festival. (I'm manipulating the Lion!)
This magical tree was our scenery, the space around it - the stage and as a background - the lake Victoria ( I will write a special post about it).
Прекарахме цялата сутрин на открито в репетиции, игри, рисуване, техническа подготовка на събитието, хапване на сандвичи, смях и снимки за спомен, докато дойде времето за обличане на костюмите.
We spent the whole morning in the open air - rehearsing, drawing, playing warming-up games, installing the music, еating sandwiches, laughing and taking pics, until it was time to put on the costumes!
So the Second Kisumu Children Theatre Festival began! Six mini-shows in the hot afternoon, that the public admired! Six beautiful and exciting stories upon African myths, customs and fairytales - the result of the hard three-week work of 200 children and 28 young Kisumu artists, a process our European team was responsible for - see http://rossichka.blogspot.com/2012/11/v-my-african-journal-part-iv.html
