Welcome to our homepage

I'm delighted that you are interested in the work of our organisation.

Much has happened during the fifteen years since the founding of the organisation. Some things have been very challenging. But the experience of overcoming the many project hurdles by means of teamwork provides powerful motivation and encouragement to move forward. The joy that both adults and children receive from our performances is so wonderful that we are constantly inspired to develop our ideas even further and to participate voluntarily.

Sincere wishes for a wonderful time.
