Hodja's School

Cyprus : Hodja's School

Suitable for viewers from 6 to 106 years old

An improvised school, two teachers that do not follow the school curriculum, and stories starring Nasreddin Hodja. A chalkboard, a staircase and teaching materials used in ordinary and unordinary ways. The key question for students: What do you know about Nasreddin Hodja?

The two teachers decide to bypass the school syllabus and as a result of this the school lessons are intertwined with Hodja’s adventures, and them with the heroes of his stories. In the spirit dictated by the cheerful personality of Nasreddin Hodja, the teachers deliver lessons of arbitrary geography, paradoxical mathematics, and intense donkology.

Through this performance, Eidekanou group aims to associate Hodja, this distant and forgotten character of Eastern folk literature, with the present. To present to children a hero different from all others, who does not need to impress in order to be likable, who is just genuine, and liberated from the expectations of the modern world.
