In Russia, on the island of Sakhalin, in the city of Korsakov a ZIPoPo show was performed in the orphanage. Before the show started, the head of the orphanage told us about the kids and their stories. One of them, a 6 year old girl, never spoke a word in two years in the orphanage. She was brought to the facility in a very bad shape, being severely beaten and abused by her drunken parents. When the show started, she was sitting in the corner and watching frowningly like a little frightened mouse looking out of its hole. The drama depicted a story of a girl who was falsely accused in stealing. When the discussion started, the silent girl looked embarrassed and concerned; something was definitely going on in her little heart. All of a sudden she raised her hand. I looked at the facilitator who was giving a floor to other kids and noticed that she doesn’t look at this little girl. I waved to her and pointed at the girl, meaning “Ask her!” The facilitator waved away as if saying “No use to ask her, she is not talking”. The girl kept holding her hand, and I kept waving to the facilitator. Finally she understood and gave her the floor. Little girl stood up and, after almost a minute of painful attempts started talking! She said: “Please, please don’t blame her, she is not guilty”. I looked at the facilitator and at the teachers together with the principal – they all were crying. This was the first time they heard her talking.
