A new festival in Warsaw aims to introduce young children to the arts through theater.

Take Part in Art—The International Festival of Theater for Early Years kicked off May 16 at the Stara Prochownia Theater and will continue until the end of this year. The festival welcomes children aged between 12 months and five years, along with their parents and caregivers.

Weekend shows at the Stara Prochownia Theater are suitable for the whole family, while on weekdays the theater stages performances for children from nurseries and preschools in Warsaw. These performances are organized by Warsaw’s Teatr Małego Widza (Theater of the Little Spectator).

Festival performers include renowned European theater companies that are members of the Small Size international artistic association and that have staged plays for young viewers for many years.

Warsaw audiences will see plays from Poland, Austria, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy.

Take Part in Art is the first major project in Poland designed to promote performances designed specifically for little children and introduce toddlers to the world of theater.

The festival is the brainchild of Agnieszka Czekierda, who is its artistic director. She says she hopes that Take Part in Art will trigger a discussion on the role of young children as participants in culture. “This is an issue of high social and cultural importance, yet it is rarely discussed in public,” says Czekierda.

Take Part in Art performances are free from moralizing content and instead, the stories they deliver are told through emotions, movement, sound, light and poetic imagery made up of ordinary, everyday objects. Members of the Small Size association tailor their performances to suit the perception and cognitive skills of toddlers and to their understanding of the world. During the festival, child audiences are immersed in theatrical art and have their sensitivity and imagination creatively stimulated.

The Take Part in Art festival includes workshops for teachers from Warsaw nurseries and preschools.

Stara Prochownia Theater; 2 Bole¶ć St.
