The premiere of the play “Pinocchio or the story of how to be a human” made the children be not so much passive spectators, but to think about how many “wooden” people are around us. This tale is a parable for parents and children about the family and its values. The boy who dreamed of mother’s love and family warmth, managed to become a son.

The authors hope that the performance is particularly useful to see for adolescents who are trying to find themselves in the world and open their own “identity”.

After the performance and the Monastery, the children walked around Kyiv, took pictures, ate ice cream. They returned home with new experiences.
