Inviting children and adults to the forest of stories

What is Workshop with No Answer?

Instead of seeking for an answer, this workshop invites children and adults to create a place where they can feel your their senses and body to find questions while having fun!
This workshop is for those who are interested in creative activities with children, and who are interested in facilitating a workshop. Also for all who believe in the possibilities of theatre and arts. Experience in theatre is not required.
