Kids perform better during boring tasks when dressed as Batman, new research finds

"The Batman-effect" One of the examples, my favourite actually, that I´m going to use when talking summerizing my knowledge in the field of clothes, self-perception and mutual communication --> https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/12/new-research-finds-that-kids-aged-4-6-perform-better-during-boring-tasks-when-dressed-as-batman?source=Snapzu

KALININGRADER QUEST

After a quite successful first screening in Delphi theatre Berlin, the film "Kaliningrader Quest" featuring my bird "Flügli-Zonz" and a handful of my costumes, needs the support of it´s audience: GO! Support it on Startnext
--> https://www.startnext.com/kaliningrader-quest?fbclid=IwAR3Ihyqdf7MQjnq1uqqi2Ou-6o-3_xCRmnY43FKnBJ8SRcF1pzsNEiFykNw

Having seen the film, I can tell: it´s a quite unusal artistic approach, but the feeling for Kaliningrad and all the invisible magic within, gives it it´s unique charm.

Die Gralsuche im 21. Jahrhundert. "Wo findet der Mensch seine Unvergänglichkeit?" Ein Film kreuz und quer durch die Epochen und Realitäten.
