"Bad Kids" - Coming to Axis Ballymun Centre this September 12th and 13th

8 Sep 2016

The Arte dell’Anima Association, in partnership with The Romanian Cultural Institute, will be at the Axis Ballymun Centre, Dublin on September 12th and September 13th, 2016, with the play “Bad Kids”, by Mihaela Michailov. The show is part of the “Handle with care. Itinerant social theatre”, which the Arte dell’Anima Theatre has won in the Romanian Cultural Institute CentenArt programme – which is celebrating 100 years since the unification of the Romanian provinces. The entrance at the three shows in Dublin is free. Please visit http://www.axisballymun.ie/whatson/shows/bad-kids to make a booking.

Inspired by a real case, 'Bad Kids' by Mihaela Michailov, tells the story of an 11 year old pupil, drastically punished during history class by her teacher, who then receives the same treatment by her classmates who follow their teacher’s example.

'Bad Kids' is a performance-manifesto of "copy-paste" generation, of "one-click away" generation, against educational system in schools as well as in families, an acute performance, one that will induce to the public very clear reflection and action themes.

The abusive relationship between teacher and pupil, taking over the "punishment" methods as educational mean, the problem of careless parents, bullying problem, the problem with poorly at school pupils, who are set aside by a system which only accepts "heroes", all of this are references in our performance.
