December: Theater Workshop for Elementary Schools

Four Looking for a Tenant

The two-day workshop takes its cue from the story Leah Goldberg tells in her children’s book „Room Free in the House of Animals”. Hens, cuckoos, cats and squirrels live together in a rented house and are looking for a suitable new tenant for the mouse. Who will get the sought-after apartment: the pig, the rabbit or the pigeon?

After the reading with Myriam Halberstam, the school-children tried various ways using play to deal with conflict and explored possibilities for living peacefully and respectfully with different cultures.

Children from the 3rd grade of the Marienfelder Elementary School took part in the workshop.
