The Artistic Laboratory

For a short while we extend the theatre experience and process it with pencils, glitter, pipe cleaners, pearls, feathers, and brown paper, and not least attentive presence, conversation, and the free range of the imagination.

 

A visit to Filiorum reaches beyond the actual theatre performance itself. Our motto is “time for theatre”, and that is precisely what we would like to offer you and your children. The time before and after the performance is important to the processing of the experience in the twilight of the theatre. Our post-performance laboratory facilitates an in-depth experience in a meaningful context, which eventually becomes intensely personal. The Artistic Laboratory is central to this process. 

 

When you go to the Filiorum Theatre, we almost always provide an attending process in the Artistic Laboratory, where children and their significant adults have the opportunity to spend time together, working creatively and artistically with the impressions and the imprints the performance generates. We play the music from the recent performance in order to build a bridge between the theatre universe and the Artistic Laboratory. In so doing, we activate the children’s memory, while their small hands work on a physical/artistic response to the performance. 

 

 

 

Filiorum is convinced that the children reflect more intensely on the theatre experience by doing creative work, expressing their impressions and thereby processing the performance in a deeply personal way. The purpose of the Artistic Laboratory is to provide quality time in order to let the theatre work its magic – also outside the theatre.
