Non-governmental organization “Belarusian Association of Assistance to Children and Young People with Disabilities” (NGO “BelAPDIiMI”) with assistance of the US Agency for International Development and Theater the Looking Glass presents a performance “Silver Wings”.
An unusual boy with one wing was born in one country. People surrounding the boy did not like him for that unusualness. He felt himselfterrifically lonely. One day a magic Bird of Happiness flied to him and said that he would obviously be happy, it is just necessary to listen carefully to his heart. One day his heart started beating strongly-strongly … He met a girl with one silver wing. At last two people with one wing could fly over this city. The question is does our city is a place from which people with wings flied away or it is a Country of people with wings?
The ballad “Silver Wings” tells that all people perceive the world only from the position that is the most convenient for them. To begin to perceive the world in a different way and to comprehend other position, it is necessary to break the stereotypes. It is not given to everyone … Not everyone aspires to it … It is necessary at least to start thinking about it …
