The DECAMERON Project offered high-school students a part in the process of producing the play. The project allowed youth to attend both rehearsals and workshops run by theatre artists, ranging from actresses, through the director, the scriptwriter, the composer to the photographer. This formula presented the youth an opportunity to explore the backstage life of theatre and have hands-on experience on what goes around in a theatre before the production sees the light of day. They could see for themselves what they like about theatre the most and what doesn’t attract their interest. And what is most important, the youth had their say in the final outcome of the play by taking part in discussions and workshops, alongside being able to express their opinions and offering up their own ideas. A performing art intro co-authored by the youth accompanied the autumn stagings (October 2011) of the production at the Brave New World Culture Center in Warsaw. The piece was produced under the supervision of Sebastian Świąder and Karolina Krawczyk from the Theater Educators' Association [Stowarzyszenie Pedagogów Teatru].
