Sitting on a bench
Leaning on the chair
Michal comes in
Aha!
I see the camera
Roll it up quick
Looking at the pictures
Aha!
And I' am screwed up
Snow outside
Poland's all green
The window's broken
Curtains torn
There's chewing gum
In the camera
And besides
We are playing cards

Dziwierz Wordchants
created during a workshop
Honeysuckle halls
Shine on sycamores,
Rowan-berry raw
Reddin unto rose
Redden hedge-row thorn
Hie thee to the thyme!
Tread not through the glade,
Sycamore heed maids!
Dziwierz the glade roams,
Glimpsing glaring coals:
Ruddy will they glow
Honeysuckle halls!

Kalinowe dwory Julian Tuwim,
from the cycle Słopiewnie

    We decided to call our series of theatre workshops for school-counselling centres from Mazowsze Province Dziwierz after a term coined by poet Julian Tuwim in his "Wordchants". The notion refers to the creative urge through which anyone can express their personality.
   "Dziwierz" means accepting what makes people different (physically, mentally, economically, or socially), and as such expresses the essence and aim of our workshops.
   We would like to introduce the people, institutions, and organisations who have contributed to our project, and without whom it would never have been possible. Each year's version of Dziwierz was developed during many hours of discussion and common work by the instructors, guardians, counsellors and volunteers, and the young people themselves.
