WOW Cinema is a collage crafted out of classic poems for children for audiences of 5 years of age and upwards!
The script revolves around a film set, including the stories of Mr Lens, a camera operator from a poem by Jan Brzechwa, as he prepares to shoot a movie. Other characters come from classic poems by the likes of J.Brzechwa, J. Tuwim, M.Konopnicka, H.Sienkiewicz, I.Krasicki
Audiences will get a glimpse behind the scenes of a film shoot and follow the adventures of all involved. The set is made up of the actor’s changing rooms, as they prepare to perform. We also see sets being put up and costumes put on.
The scenic reality ruins the illusion of the world we see on screen – a set which is in progress being revealed to us, including basic studios, cardboard walls, set pieces on wheels and painted designs.
Our animal characters have a shared aim – creating a film together. The poems penned by Polish authors allow a broad spectrum of emotions to be shown, along with comical situations involved in the process of creative work: each animal has its own way of experiencing life on set – stage fright, shyness, lack of self-confidence – these are only some of the emotions experienced during these performances. Taking part in these performances is an excuse for the characters to face their fears and unleash their own inner creative energies.
A strobe light effect is used in this production.
