During the educational workshop, we watched the film Songs from the Compost: Mutating Bodies, Imploding Stars, which was on view in the exhibition Song Sing Soil by Eglė Budvytytė and Marija Olšauskaitė. The pupils drew inspiration from the film to develop their dance performance which was developed during the educational workshop.
Participants got creative with questions such as: "How do animals move?", "How would you move if you were a bacterium?" and "How does a stone lie?". Using different costumes, pupils were also challenged to move together. Because how should you move if you are in one costume together? The result was expressed in a short performance guided by the music used in the film.
Education is of great importance to Vleeshal. Its educational program accompanying the exhibitions is twofold. Firstly, for each child who visits the exhibition there is an educational assignment available at the counter. This assignment is based on the child's perception of the world. Secondly, Vleeshal organizes educational workshops for both primary school and secondary education. This workshop consists of a receptive part in which the schoolchildren or students view and discuss the exhibition, and a reflective part with a processing assignment.
