Day 1 of the short-term exchange meeting in Spain

In the middle of the night, after an adventurous journey and running through Frankfurt airport to catch the plane to Madrid, we finally arrived in Tomelloso.

Nevertheless, we were up and about on time to meet our dearest host Ana Maria Manzano Piqueras at Colegio St.Tomas de Aquino – La Milagrosa. Our teachmeet session began and we discussed past activities, preparation for the play and things to be done before the premiere of Murder in Istanbul, which will be held on Thursday, 12th April 2018 at the local theatre.

We also discussed activities for students after the meeting and finalizing the project.
Before the rehearsal we were welcomed by the new head mistress Laura Lopez, who wished us good luck and successful premiere. Then we joined our students at their first rehearsal (reading and dancing).

First impressions are great. We learned something new about preparing a school play and we had a lot of fun. A famous lecturer once said ‘Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much’ and we couldn’t agree more. Without any doubt, our international play with Croatian, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Spanish, Italian and Turkish stage crew proves the fact that although we speak different languages, we all understand the language of art.
