Looking for Yoghurt - A play inspired by the wisdom of children
Applicant: The Spark Children's Art Festival
Field: Education, Arts
Looking for Yoghurt is a cross-cultural collaboration between artists in the UK, Korea and Japan. Writers, directors and actors came together to create a new play for children aged 7+ and their families.
In June 2009, the play came to The Spark as part of the festival's schools programme, playing to school and family audiences. It's story exploring children's ability to bridge the divides of culture and language in a world where adult guidance is absent.
Schools attending the performances were able to book a free supporting workshop exploring the key themes in the story, such as communication and understanding between individuals and cultures and learning to accept differences in culture, language and personality.
