Open Space Theatre
An interview with Francisco Morales, Director of Open Space Theatre.
One of these concepts is participation.
We put this idea in action stimulating children to take part in the stories we put on, before, during and after the show,
being active participants opposed to passive spectators.
The concept is later developed by teachers in the class room encouraging children to create fictional stories,
progressing into the idea of creating stories about themselves, some 10, 15 or more years in the future.
This generates the thinking that they are responsible for creating their own individual and collective stories in real life,
mastering their destiny and not just leaving people in power to dictate them what to think or do.
The project’s called ‘Once upon a time…children and their gift to create stories’.
