Czech theater „Formela“ brought joy to Indian schools

Czech theather group Formela toured many Indian cities in August 2013 with their interactive performance „Travel Around the World“.

FORMELA Group, headed by Ms. Hana Baronova and Mr. Petr Florian, performed in August 2013 the interactive piece “Travel Around the World” in many different schools in various Indian cities.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in New Delhi assisted in organizing the performance on 12 – 12 August 2013 in Mumbai in Aditya Birla World Academy and The Bombay International School and on 22 – 23 August 2013 in New Delhi in St. Mary’s School, Tagore International School, Sanskriti School and K. R. Mangalam School, Gurgaon.

Formela performed intentionally in Czech language with the aim to promote the Czech language and also to prove that children don´t need to understand the language in order to comprehend the context of the performance and enjoy it. Indian children proved to be a wonderful audience, spontaneously reacting to non-verbal and sound incentives and actively participating in the performance. Judging by the happy and smiling eyes of the children, they must have fully enjoyed the performance.

The performance left amused also the managers and teachers of the schools who appreciated both educational and emotional aspects of the performance and invited more Czech theater ensembles to perform in Indian schools.
