UNICEF: Children and adults show their talent in interactive theatre show

UNICEF the Netherlands is joining the week of activities around Statia Day by hosting an interactive theatre show on Monday the 14th of November at 8:00 pm at the main stage. Parents, caretakers and their children are invited to join the play and show their talent. Dancing, singing, poetry, comedy and music acts will be combined in the theatre performance, ‘Show your Talent’. By practicing and performing acts together, the child rights organization is encouraging quality time within families. A key element in a child’s development.

‘Show your Talent’ is an interactive theatre performance directed by Archell Thompson, professional storyteller and theater maker from Curaçao. A show in which parents, caretakers and children are given the opportunity to perform an act of choice within varied categories such as music, dance, poetry and comedy. Creative homebased experiences they usually enjoy at home, which will now be shared on stage. The show is succeeding the mini documentaries about quality time, made in collaboration with families on St. Eustatius and Saba. People are most welcome to join the audience at the main stage on Monday the 14th at 8:00 pm.

The importance of spending time together is highlighted by UNICEF the Netherlands throughout this year. ‘Show your Talent’ is part of a campaign which started on May 28th, the World Day of Play and was followed up by the mini documentaries recently shared via social media. ‘Show your Talent’ completes the campaign about quality time.


‘Show your Talent’ is part of the festivities initiated by the Department of Culture. The campaign is a collaboration between UNICEF the Netherlands and the Public Entities of Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius and is part of UNICEF's BES program which is made possible by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations.
