UNICEF: Children and adults show their talents in interactive theatre show
UNICEF the Netherlands is hosting an interactive theatre show on Wednesday February 1st at 6:00 pm at Jong Bonaire. Parents, caretakers and their children were invited to join the theatre and show their talent. Dancing, singing, poetry, comedy and music acts will be combined in a storytelling theatre performance. By practicing and performing the acts together, the child rights organization is encouraging quality time within families. A key element in a child’s development.
‘Show your Talent’ is an interactive theatre performance directed by Archell Thompson, professional storyteller and theater maker from Curaçao. A show in which parents, caretakers and children are given the opportunity to perform an act of choice within varied categories such as music, dance, poetry and comedy. Creative homebased experiences they usually enjoy at home, which will now be shared on stage. The show is succeeding the mini documentaries about quality time, made in collaboration with families on Saba and St. Eustatius. People are most welcome to join the audience on Wednesday February 1st at 6:00 pm.
The importance of spending time together is highlighted by UNICEF the Netherlands throughout this year. The Show your Talent is part of a campaign which started on the World Day of Play on May 28th 2022, and was followed by the mini documentaries recently shared via social media. Show your Talent completes the campaign about quality time.
The campaign is a collaboration between UNICEF the Netherlands and the Public Entities of Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius and is part of UNICEF's Dutch Caribbean program for Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba which is made possible by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations.
