Educational Programme “Les Misérables”
The educational programme “Les Misérables
” is addressed to students of the 5th and 6th grade of Elementary School and of the 1st, 2d and 3d grade of High School.
“Les Misérables” describes the lives of the impoverished residents of Paris and the French province of the early 19th century, following the adventures of Jean Valjean and his pursuer, the police inspector Javert. Around these two multi-faceted characters, Hugo weaves an unprecedented tapestry of heroes, elaborating on the concept of Good and Evil.
The ongoing crisis of culture and society leaves us, once more, with no choice but concentrate on the subject of poverty and inequality. Using excerpts from “Les Misérables” by Victor Hugo as starting point, we unfold on stage our thoughts and our concerns for the socio-cultural context in which we live.
Despite the volume of knowledge directed towards them, children today have only learned to retain information. Children today know what is happening on the other side of the planet, but do not know who lives next door. Children today are greatly lacking in emotion, and experience events as news. To put it simply: let us help them, through the power of the Theatre, to feel what is happening around them and next to them a bit more vividly”.
