Practical Advice for Well-Behawed Children 5+

Vaňousová, Volpi, Dobovšek and Bečka / 45 min

When Mark Twain wrote Advice to Little Girls in 1865 and his lecture Advice to Youth in 1882, he had no idea that future people would be wondering whether such literature is even appropriate for children. For all those who (yet) cannot read, here is a theatre play. May literate people enter as well? Certainly–rules are made to be occasionally broken. Adults can enjoy a children's play and the children can laugh at jokes which they aren't (yet) allowed to understand.

This performance is a collage of small stories about childhood memories, where innocence and mischief jump hand in hand across streams – and sometimes purposely miss the bank.
