FOR YOUR OWN GOOD
Performance inspired by Children’s Rights and realized in the frame of the RIGHT4KIDS Project.
The right to proper education belongs to all children and young people without discrimination as regards their race, gender, language, or faith. The fight against the exploitation of children and other impediments against their growth and development are just a few of the problems our children face in modern society. The show is based on Article 3 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child: “When adults make decisions, they should think about how their decisions will affect children. All adults should do what is best for children.”
The initial research for the show was done in collaboration with young people without parental care within the SOS Children Villages Foundation.
Using the structure of fairy tales and their deconstruction, the show explores the problematic side of the world in which we live, with the idea of raising awareness of the rights of young people and children, but also of inspiring and motivating us not to close our eyes to the violation of these rights but to build a path for their application.
The performance For Your Own Good is part of the Rights4Kids project that DAH Theater produced with partners from Italy (Fondazione Aida and A.T.T.I. Theatrical Association), Greece (AeroplioTeatar and Action Sinergy), and the Czech Republic (Performalita).
