My mine story after studying a story drama.
Kids often say, look at this. Cute, plump little hands point here and there and want to see what they see together. And just when someone sees it together, they talk about it. I often see the genius of these children. And even non-verbal babies point with their fingers. They are mime geniuses. They express what they see through gestures, facial expressions, and sounds.
As Marcel Marceau said about the history of mime, we learn that mime is an art and a language itself. Back in the day, I went to school to pick up my child during the Pandemic. Everyone was wearing masks, standing six feet apart in fear, and not saying a word. Then a baby in her mother's arms saw something in her, pointed, and laughed. It was the white moon seen in the morning. The baby thought it was funny, pulling her mother's hair to let her mom see it, making cute noises, and waving her hands in circles. And she pretended to eat something. I thought then that the baby was eating white bread. The adult laughed at the child's mime. I will never forget this scene. So, I made this mime with the theme of looking at the moon.
Look at the moon floating in the sky. Why does the moon rise in the morning? What was he so curious about? Why did the night moon come to play in the morning? Can you imagine? Was the night too dark? Or was he just curious about what the world in his light would look like in the morning?
The moon is a curious child. Become the moon for a moment. Where do you want to shine? Quietly and quietly close your eyes and round your body like the moon. Then get up again and turn around quietly in a circle as if you had become the moon. And stop. Where do you want to shine? Where is it? Why did you choose that place? How was your mind when you illuminated the place?
If I were the moon, I would light the windows of the wishing child's house. Children look at the moon and make a wish. I will grant that wish. And I will remember. What wish do you have? I am the moon; tell me everything. The moon cannot speak. Instead, it turns around, making round and round shapes. So when you tell me your wish, you should talk in the language of the moon. So right now, please express your wish in the moon's language. Then I will remember your wish well, prepare it diligently in the morning when the sun shines, and make your wish come true the next day. But if your wish is too hard to come true, I can come to see you for a while in the morning. Then look at me and smile wide. We'll meet again tonight
