2. A child grows up in ancient Athens (pre-visit program) – combined with Acropolis and Ancient Agora of Athens and Museum guided visits

The figure of a boy that lived in ancient Athens comes alive in front of the students’ eyes… 

Through a performance - dramatised narrative with rich support resources, the boy will take the students on a trip back into time. They will visit ancient Athens, the Acropolis, the ancient Agora, the boy’s home, his family, the toys he played with, his school, the gym, the theatre, the people he met and listened to.

After that, the students will activate their senses and use their imagination as they will participate in drama and other engaging activities led by theatrical educators and pedagogues; they will “touch” their distant friend and spot differences and similarities to their own reality.
