The disarming horse

About the ploy of disarming the world

Description

The disarming horse

BACKGROUND

The "Children's Conference", during which children and young people from all over the world expressed their thoughts on contemporary issues by artistic means, took place in 30 different countries between 2014-2018. Subsequently, the Papiertheater (paper theatre) initiated the "Children’s summit conference", which gathered about 70 delegate children from eleven countries at the “Straße der Menschenrechte” (Street Of Human Rights) in Nuremberg in order to publish and artistically represent their mutual concerns.

One of the key topics: Stop wars / abolish weapons
www.konferenz-der-kinder.de
From this background, the production "The Disarming Horse" was created.


CONTENT

The ancient Greek story of the Trojan horse is about war – whereas our new story of the disarming horse seeks peace.

The Turkish-German collaboration has created a production which combines both stories in a humorous and enigmatic way while specifically responding to current affairs.

The stage consists of a large wooden wall. With the help of saws and hammers, screws and nails a unique wooden theatre arises before the eyes of the audience. Brushes become swords, pipe wrenches become soldiers, and beautiful Helena turns into a screw.

At the end of the scenic play, the wooden wall is painted, sawed and bolted: A collection box for plastic weapons has been created, which will remain at the respective location.

Now you can join in – set a sign for peace! And thus, everyone can continue to tell the story of the disarming horse by throwing their own plastic weapons into the box.


IDEA

We collect plastic weapons worldwide! From all collected weapons we will build a four-meter-high sculpture which, after a while, will be made into the "temple of disarmament".

This temple expresses the children’s and adolescents’urgent wish to "Stop wars / abolish weapons": Disarming their own nurseries by abolishing their plastic toy weapons will become an exemplary role model for disarmament in the entire world.

Therefore, dear children and adolescents, if you want to support this demand, send your plastic weapons together with your first given name and age to:

Spielzeugmuseum Nuremberg
Karlstraße 13-15
90403 Nürnberg

Or throw your plastic toy weapon in the disarming horse!

A wooden theatre for children, adolescents, adults
