Do girls like pink, play with dolls and dance ballet? Do boys like blue, play with cars and play football? Or do girls play football and boys play with dolls? What can girls do and boys can’t? What do they want to be (and can be) when they grow up? These and other questions were asked to children, as well as their answers, hesitations and silences were the starting point for the creation of Catarina Requeijo’s new play. Gender questions are brought onto the stage, avoiding stereotypes, erasing labels and leaving the spectator with many, many questions.

Workshop É Pró Menino e Prá Menina: Estereótipos de Género
Conception and direction: Catarina Requeijo and Vera Alvelos
Target audience: kindergarten teachers

21 e 26 January
Monday, 17h-20h
Saturday, 14h30-17h30

In this workshop kindergarten teacher are offered the tools to question their students about pre-conceived ideas on both genders. With a very practical approach, it is fundamental that the attendees question themselves on the subject. By means of dramatic games and painting, the adults will find themselves in a place of doubting in order to be able to do the same with their students.
