A documentary on children's theatre and gender roles

If a group of children in a free and equal environment were to put together a theatre play…

What kind of story would they write?

Theatrum is a documentary focusing on gender roles during childhood and children’s ability to detach themselves from these roles, all dealt with from a feminist perspective. During a theatre workshop in a prejudice-free environment, a group of children accepts the challenge of creating a fairer society. They write a play that reveals the keys to understanding what adults cannot do because of the emotional weight of their own experiences, leaving them unable to build a better world.

It is a learning experience in two different ways. On the one hand, the workshop helps children grow freely and on the other, the documentary highlights how experience can help us move towards a more egalitarian society.

Children hold the key to understanding ourselves as well as the tools to improve ourselves.

Lights, camera and… action!

Theatrum will be filmed in different locations of the Fabra i Coats factory complex in the Sant Andreu neighbourhood in Barcelona, with students from the Escola Can Fabra public school. As well as creating a play with a focus on gender, each child will have the chance to apply their learning to their own social and family environment.
