It’s been school holidays the past two weeks, which means that regularly scheduled kiddy activities are not on. It seems strange that when your kids are home from school there’s no library story time or little kid gymnastics at the rec center or other much-needed rainy day diversions, but that’s the way they do it here. The consolation is that special kid activities are often scheduled instead, in this case Cushion Theater. We didn’t realized that Cushion Theater means BYO cushion (no chairs), but thankfully the theater had a box full of pillows for clueless folks like us, and we settled in to a tiny attic stage with an intimate audience of 25ish to watch The Tortoise and the Hare. Amazingly, the performers kept the rapt attention of all the kids, even 20-month-old Amelie, with songs and dancing and audience participation.
