Crei La Ginesta’s colleagues write to us to tell us about a very special project, a play, that has earned them high doses of patience, enthusiasm and a point of madness, as they say themselves! But we leave you with his text…
It is difficult to start explaining a project that grew, piano piano, from the enthusiasm and creativity of the children, together with a dose of a lot of patience and willingness of the educators, the confidence of the direction, perseverance and motivation of the teachers, together with a point of madness / delivery of the entire community of CREI La Ginesta
The project responded to mounting a play for the end of the course, understood within the classroom programming.
In the first trimester, theatre games were worked on, to work on voice, improvisation, voice projection, disinhibition, etc.
The second term was represented by small stories, poems, mimicry, etc.
And the third quarter began with the title of the play: “2 hours alone”.
From there, the script was worked on with the students, the youth attended to Ginesta, discovering characters, the plot of the script and finally the outcome (preparing the props, choosing clothes, assembling songs, folders on the computer with all the sounds necessary for the sound technician, mounting audios, etc.).
“The process has been very interesting and full of creativity, although we will not fool you, also many frustrations, many moments of disillusionment”
The process has been very interesting and full of creativity, although we will not fool you, also many frustrations, many moments of disillusionment, disillusionment, etc. But maintaining motivation including all the proposals of the students and perseverance were the ingredients to grow the work. The key moment was to be able to feel the confidence transmitted from the direction of the project that was being carried out.
“The City Council immediately trusted the proposal and gave the space altruistically, which we greatly appreciate”
Thus it became believed that the Athenaeum of Celrà would be a good place for students to show their work.
The City Council immediately trusted the proposal and gave the space altruistically, which we greatly appreciate. And not only that, but we thought going to see the space would motivate the boys and girls, and that’s how it was. From the day they saw the space, motivation and responsibility grew.
The councilor for culture was always available. We did a general rehearsal the day before and even made us a sound technician selflessly, which was not easy for everything I had to control.
Nerves and embarrassments were on the rise as the event approached, so it was necessary to make moments of relaxation and sharing of fears and nerves in order to stop the anxiety. This, it must be said, was accompanied by a lot of patience from the team of professionals who have been present in the process.
The day of the presentation arrived and as it could not be otherwise they were absolutely delivered to the play, showing all the skills learned and making an obvious personal growth that captured the entire audience.
