Theatre in a Classroom

How a theatre teaches participation in a country where democracy does not have deep historical roots? A 35 minutes documentary about Kava Theatre.


Kava Theatre




Creative concept

We based our concept on interviews with children.

We shot three performances by Kava and did in depth interviewes with actors, actresses and children. We also used acrhive material from the past of Kava.

Kava Theatre is one of those independent theatre groups which are having hard times to survive. Because they teach critical thinking to children and young people and it is getting ever more difficult to finance this kind of cultural activity in Hungary.

As we like to use mobile phone video footage, we asked the members of the theatre to create video testimonies that they shoot by themselves. Some of these short testimonies proved to be useful for the film.
