In the project Silent Post Theatre the children go in search of silence. Do they exist and if so, where? Is silence boring? Or does it have something to tell us? Maybe it also has a sense of humour? When searching for silence, the children come up with tests – for example, whether you become completely silent during a foot water bath. Games are played around silence and others are asked how they experience silence: What does silence sound like when you are deaf or hear impaired? Finally, a Silence Test Course is built, to which guests and other children are invited to participate.
The project lasted one week, four hours a day for children aged 8-11. On the last day they were invited to experiment together.
Experiments, games, silence & water accompanied the children and inspired their fantasies.
