The World's Worst Children's Theater - a project

Från en workshop med elever från Ringstorpsskolan, Helsingborg. 

During this spring Bibu has in collaboration with Månteatern and their actors workshopped with 75 students from the 5th and 7th grade. The theme for the workshops has been “what is good and poor theatre”.
The aim for the project has been to inspire the young audience in creative work and also to give them tools for how performing arts and arts in general can be both reflecting and enrichment. Besides from workshops the students have also seen two different performances. 

The project ended with a seminar where the students showed some of their work, followed by a panel talk around some questions; How can performing arts change someones life? Does arts have to be educational or have a message? Must the students learn something? Participity as an audience – is that important and how far can students' participation go? 

The panelists: 
Marie Parker Shaw, Artistic Director at Månteatern
Erika Isaksson, Public Relations Officer at Backa teater
Karin Holmström, Children Culture Developer in the City of Ystad
Katarina Svenning, Teacher at Dammfriskolan in Malmö
Moderator: Anna Berg, dramaturg

It is both good and bad that many performances are fully booked. 

Many of this year’s chosen productions perform, due to artistic choices, in very small venues, and are therefore already fully booked. However, since one of bibu’s mission also is to play for schoolchildren, we have reserved tickets for schools. But the tickets not booked by schools, will be released around 25 April

Have you already booked, you can via the booking link in your booking confirmation add more or change your booking. Last day to re-book is 8 May and last day to book on-line is 13 May

Program and booking!

On Thursday 15 March at 13.00 the booking opens for bibu 2018!
