Continuing the work of Small Size – Performing Arts for Early Years, Mapping is an artistic research project focused on creating a sensory-based relationship with very young children, from 0 to 6 years, through performing arts. In particular, it explores the idea of “children-spectators of today and not only of tomorrow”.

Children, especially the youngest ones, are “new subjects of the world”, they are still discovering it, as much as they are discovering themselves. They have not established specific classification criteria yet, but they perceive what is aesthetic at any level of representation.

By observing them, we can detect the signs, the aesthetic moments experienced by the children in contact with artistic proposals, when they are “extremely sensitive”, that means in harmony with what they perceive.

The very young children’s aesthetic moments reveal themselves through long silences, wide eyes, imperceptible sounds, sudden excitement, surprise, unexpected laughter, and stances that display the total involvement of their senses.

A process full of open questions to start to map the aesthetic dimension of very young children, trying to detect the tracks, the many aesthetic moments, that children reveal during the artistic relationship and the underlying reasons.

Not a Manifesto on the how-to of theatre, dance or music for early years, nor a Charter offering the ultimate set of rules to create the “perfect” show, either, but a Map that helps us to orient ourselves between the “significant elements of the sensitive relationship” between the young child and the artist (the Contact, the Proposal, the Reaction and the Balance), when we intersect them with the fundamentals of the performing arts (Sound, Word, Image and Movement).

The project is created within the framework of the Creative Europe program.

PLAYON! – New Storytelling with Immersive Technologies

PLAYON!, a cooperation project announced by the European Commission under their Culture Funding Stream Creative Europe, will run from 2019 – 2023. Kolibri Theatre is proud to be one of the members of this network and looking forward to this unique international cooperation.

PLAYON! was initiated by 9 theatres with experience in the use of digital technologies and a university with high digital expertise. 8 universities from the creative digital sector are associated partners in order to facilitate access to technical knowledge. Kolibri Theatre is pleased to have found a regional partner in the Scenography Department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, which will accompany the project with its digital expertise.

Digital technology is causing major changes in society. Contemporary theatre must understand the process of digital change and work to incorporate digital technology into its concepts. PLAYON! is dedicated to the theme “Concrete Utopias in the Digital Age” and designed to understand, test and apply immersive technology in order to shift classical storytelling into interactive narrative formats.

Across 4 years the partners’ aim is:

  • to develop new forms of storytelling, building on narrative structures used in the creative game sector
  • to merge these new forms with a variety of immersive technologies
  • to use this new format to extend theatre towards the public urban space with relevant stories and the involvement of young adults as co-creators.

Our involvement and that of our European partners will develop across three phases. In each of them we will work on one of the above objectives, investigating the relationships between content and technology; the learning gained at each stage will then inform the next phase.

Supported by the experts of the Scenography Department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts and our European colleagues we will be developing 3 international co-productions (in total 27 productions will be created within PLAYON!). After 4 years we aim to have established new and advancing relationships between artistic practice, professional training and industrial sectors both nationally and across Europe.

Az ASSITEJ Magyar Központ a gyermek- és ifjúsági színházak világszervezetének magyar egyesülete 1971-ben jött létre. Alapvető célkitűzése, hogy Európa legjobb gyermekszínházi törekvéseit mutassa be Magyarországon, illetve a legjobb magyar gyerekelőadásoknak és szerzőknek nemzetközi ismeretséget szerezzen. A jelenlegi struktúra, melynek keretében a központ a Kolibri Színházban működik, 2000 óta áll fenn. Tagjaink között egyaránt vannak professzionális és amatőr színházak, társulatok, Magyarország-szerte.

Legfőbb tevékenységünk a kétévente – legutóbb 2014. május 5-10 között – megrendezésre kerülő Kaposvári Gyermek-és Ifjúsági Színházi Biennálé megszervezése, létrehozása. A biennálé kulturális és művészeti programok, magyar és határon túli színházi előadások széles skáláját kínálja gyermekek, fiatalok, családok számára egyaránt. Az előzetesen kiválogatott előadásokat kerekasztal-beszélgetések, ifjúsági programok, workshopok kísérik. A következő ASSITEJ biennáléra 2016 májusában kerül sor.

 ASSITEJ International (Association Internationale du Théâtre pour l’Enfance et la Jeunesse) proposes to unite theatres, organizations and individuals throughout the world dedicated to theatre for children and young people. The Association is dedicated to artistic, humanitarian, and educational efforts and no decision, action or statement of the Association shall be based on nationality, political conviction, cultural identity, ethnicity, or religion. Members of the Association are national centres, representative of theatre for children and young people in their own countries. ASSITEJ Hungarian Center was established in 1971. The present structure, with Kolibri Theatre representing the Centre, has been existing since 2000. Members of ASSITEJ Hungarian Centre include professional and amateur theatres and companies from all over Hungary. One of the main activities of ASSITEJ Hungarian Centre is the organization of the Biennale of National and International Theatres for Children and Youth every second year. In 2014 the Biennale was held from 5 to 10 May 2014 at Kaposvár. Beside offering a wide range of cultural programs and activities for children and families, the festival (usually in the city of Kaposvár), functions as a key event of professional Hungarian children’s and youth theatres where a selection of the best and most innovative plays are accompanied by round-table discussions, workshops, work-in-progress sessions, and the ASSITEJ award ceremony. The next ASSITEJ Biennale we are participating on is going to be held in the beginning of May, 2016.

 

Az EuropeFiction Project 2019-2022 között zajlik, öt Ruhr-vidéki német színház és öt más európai színház együttműködésével.

A tíz partner a három év alatt párokban dolgozva öt olyan közös produkciót hoz létre, melyek célkorosztálya és szereplői tinédzserek. A produkciók fókuszában egy-egy erőteljes emberi téma áll, melynek körbejárása és a megoldások keresése is tinédzser-központú, a tizenévesek világlátását, frissességét és gondolkodását tükrözve.

A projekt partnerei:

  • Theater Kohlenpott (Herne) és a La Baracca (Bologna)
  • Helios Theater ( Hamm) és a Kolibri Gyermek- és Ifjúsági Színház, együttműködve a Nemes-Nagy Ágnes Művészeti Szakgimnáziummal.
  • KJT Dortmund és La Transplanisphere Paris
  • Consol Theater Gelsenkirchen és 20 Stories High Liverpool
  • Junges Schauspielhaus Bochum és Theater Rotterdam

A projektről további információ érhető el a https://europefiction.org/ oldalon.
