Performance based on “Nonno Tommaso” by Štěpán Zavřel took place on the 11th of March 2019 at “Lypky Theatre” (15/17 Lypska str., Kyiv)
Performance Director was Iana Gudzenko. Children from “Our Kids” Centre were the main characters in the show, which was accompanied by special exhibition of Štěpán Zavřel’s illustrations.
The Performance is a final product of the sociocultural “Inclusion” Project, a unique creative initiative for social and psychological rehabilitation of children having experienced trauma. The Project was implemented in three cycles, each lasting nine months and ending with a special artistic performance. The result of the first cycle (2012-2013) was the Performance “Venice. City of Hope.” The second cycle ended with the performance “On the Other Side of the Sun” in 2015. All of the performances are based on the books and drawings of Czech author and illustrator of children’s books Štěpán Zavřel.
