For the third consecutive year, the Athens & Epidaurus festival organize creative workshops for children during the performances on Fridays and Saturdays at Xenia Epidavros (Costume Museum) next to the Ancient Theater.

Parents and guardians can watch the performances, while children are creatively engaged. The themes of the theatre, movement, music and art workshops will be inspired by the day’s theatre performance and will be divided in categories shaped according to children’s age and knowledge, so that the workshop can act as a communication bridge, where guardians and children can afterwards share and discuss, through their own individual filter, the themes of the day’s performance.
