Celebrating the 50th anniversary, and stressing the importance of commitment to the social responsibility in the Jordanian community, Bank of Jordan recently endorsed Teatret OM’s show “79 Fjord – an expedition to the unknown” an immersive theatrical performance inside a huge igloo at the Children’s Museum,.
This considerable initiative is in line with the Bank’s strategic goals, which aim, among other objectives, at positioning the Bank as an effective constituent of the local community, and to play a positive role in the constructive social programs, especially that such initiatives contribute to expanding children’s span of knowledge and education, and to widening their horizons.
“79’Fjord - Expedition to the Unknown” is an educational theatrical performance with fascinating visual and sound effects, and it is directed towards an audience above the age of eight both children and adults. The artists of Teatret OM traveled with their equipment and huge igloo set all the way from the far, cold country, Denmark, to arrive here in Amman at the Children’s Museum Jordan, and perform the outstanding educational show.
The audience gathered in the huge igloo to watch the actors narrating (in English) the story of three young men who ventured up the unknown coastline of Greenland in 1906-1908 in order to complete the last part of the world map around this giant land of ice. It is worth noting that hosting OM Teatret in the Children’s Museum is not only an opportunity to venture in the freezing Greenland, but it is also a way to explore the theatrical production, full of imagination and fantasy.
Children’s Museum Jordan is one of the educational organizations launched by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, and it aims at providing the children with experiences in sciences, arts, and history to enhance their creativity and arouse their curiosity. The expedition in the land of ice is an interesting adventure for the children, and this performance represents a remarkable experience for the kids living in Jordan, one of the world’s warm countries; it also offers an opportunity to highlight a whole new world faraway from us, and to live in a real adventure with both its joyful and gloomy moments.
