‘When the baby smiles, it seems that even the clouds disappear from the sky’, – said the theater-artistic festival ‘Gudzyk’ (‘Button’) organizers, which took place in the village of Vyshkovo in Khust district yesterday, – boys and girls from the public organization ‘Molotok’ (‘Hammer’). This is not the first project of young people from Nyzhnie Selyshchie, because they have been conducting art workshops and arranging dramatic performances in their native village for six years already. Talented and active young people are known beyond the Transcarpathia as the children’s theater festival ‘Ptakh’ (‘Bird’) organizers.
This year’s ‘Molotok’ participants decided to expand the geography of their actions on other villages in Khust district in order to attract more rural youth and children to the theater. The first shirt for ‘Button’ became a multinational village of Vyshkovo.
The celebration has started in the school assembly hall where kids watched with pleasure the play ‘Take me to the circus’ performed by the creative association ‘YO!’ participants. The soap bubbles show caused an unbelievable joy.
Vyshkovo school number 1 courtyard turned into the children’s creativity, fun and entertainment territory. Each kid could feel himself an artist by painting colors or simply palms, sculpting with clay. The older studied the body art, pantomime, dance, juggling, made willingly origami, decorations or toys. The volunteers from the family center ‘Kaleidoskop’, which recently operates in the village of Vyshkovo and even from abroad, were invited for the work with children.
Amusement rides and carousels also worked for kids. Funny clowns Kvakusha and Uncle Yasha cheered and entertained kids with jokes and movable games. The young audience watched the play ‘Kordon’ (‘Border’) performed by the theater-studio ‘Chiha-Biha’ (the village of Nyzhnie Selyshche) and sang in ‘Karaoke on the stool’ after the lunch time. The celebration ended with the concert and the fire-show.
The first ‘Button’ presented a lot of smiles and positive emotions to kids and adults.
