Wilnoteka.lt Portal and the Association of Teachers of Polish Schools in Lithuania “Alma Mater” and Dom Kultury Polskiej (House of Polish Culture) invited Polish children from school to attend the Vilnius region in the first festival “humor from the prom” – Cabaret “StuDnia’2015”.
In the past half-century Proms in Polish schools in Lithuania have become a specific character, becoming one of the most popular events among youth through their cabaret character. Students in grades prior to matriculation and matriculation prepare a whole series of sketches and parodies that are issued only once – at the prom (last time two – also at the meeting of graduates) – viewers of these shows are so only the students themselves, teachers, if necessary. Parents and graduates of this school . The idea of Cabaret “Well” is a way out of the school humor to a wider audience and showcase student competition cabarets in the system – the best are worth even valuable prizes! If there are festivals, school theaters, folk groups and children’s song – why good humor, which never enough, is to remain in the shadows? The more that does not require a special effort beyond the choice of the most successful jokes, sketches and songs (dance) with a presentation of the latest prom and again, no longer in school, but in a wider circle of His Same!
Inviting you to participate in this festival, we want to pay more attention to young people on the cabaret stage as a form of creativity and artistic expression. To this day, in the Vilnius there is not a fixed group of cabaret, despite interest from the Polish community is huge!
We also want to mobilize students and teachers to become more involved in the preparatory stages of the creative program of traditional proms, encouraging a more ambitious and universal treatment of the presentation, go beyond the typical parodies jokes and secondary teachers.
We hope Cabaret “Well” will become a regular event, which will grow once permanent cabaret groups, preparing original own program to the public, not only Polish, and not only in Lithuania. We believe that the incentive to participate in the Cabaret will not only be attractive prizes – and the best reward will go to Brussels! – But also the will of rivalry and self-confidence and self-creation.
