DAYS OF BREAD – PUPPET SHOW WITH EDUCATIONAL SESSION
The project Days of Bread is a new activity of the Archaeology Centre of Almada, in partnership with actress-puppeteer Ângela Ribeiro and inspired by the Museo Mundial project.
We are in the production stage and in May we’ll present the first sessions.
With a puppet show and an educational session, we’ll think about the heritage, the local economy and the eradication of hunger in the world.
In the puppet show, Loaf the mouse and Quixote the miller, will have an adventure in Almada’s windmills. Their adventures remind us how these mills worked and the importance they had for the people of that place.
How does this relate to the local economy and the eradication of hunger in the world?
That’s what we’ll see in the educational session, through games and experiences that will help childreen learn while playing.
The Days of Bread is the result of a happy meeting between a school (which suggested us a completely new activity for their elementary students), the Archaeology Centre of Almada, the actress-puppeteer Ângela Ribeiro and the Museo Mundial project.
We have lots of arms, legs and heads helping us and that’s what made possible to conceive this project, to write the story The Adventures of Loaf the Mouse and Quixote the Miller as well as create the educational session. Now we just need a litle push to launch this adventure.
At this point we need your help to build the puppet show; for the materials to be used in educational session and the resources for advertising wich will help us reach more schools.
Be a part of this project and support us with this Crowdfunding.
Oh, and by the way, spread the word! With you’re help we’ll go far!
