Why My Space
Everyone — even children need a space that is just theirs. Sometimes it's a room or designated area of their home, and sometimes it's an invisible force field around their body into which only a chosen few are comfortably allowed. Teaching children to respect the personal space of their peers begins at school with conversations on self-respect. If fostered carefully, this respect will progress into a social tool that the child will use for the rest of his or her life.
‘Through it’s festival theme My Space, My Body’, GAIT hopes to empower children by giving them a better understanding of the interplay of body and space. Using the framework of music, dance, rhythm, theatre, puppetry, young minds experiment with the notion of personal space and present their ideas through a choreography. The benefits of this festival are manifolds and not just restricted to the theme of My Space My Body.
GAIT fosters creative thinking, team work; critical thinking and body mind connect.
Through this unique pedagogy we aim to create a generation of happy, innovative youngsters who are as free in their bodies as they are in their minds.
