Jujubee, a Play for Children, by Adisakti Theatre Arts

I have never witnessed a live performance with this full of life before. The performance was a mix of story-telling, masks and puppet shows, dance performances with live background music throughout the play. The energy and enthusiasm of the artists were remarkable.

Finding Dory with #ColgateMagicalStories

When I asked Vihaan what story he can think of with these sea animals, without a thought he replied, “Finding Dory.” Well, that’s the recent movie we’d watched and with full of sea characters in the movie, he could at once relate it to these characters. I had cut them and gave it to him without prompting with any of my ideas. The video you see below is an unedited version of a story he had come up with. It is incoherent, well to us, but he was creating a story to himself. I can tell him 100’s of stories but one little story, though incoherent and without meaning from him at this age seemed certainly precious.
