In 2016, Mareike founded the children’s theatre company აიწონა დაიწონა (AITSONA DAITSONA) – Georgia’s first emancipatory  theatre for children. Together with a team of six actresses and actors she brings new, emancipatory plays for children to schools and communities centres all over Georgia. AITSONA DAITSONA is closely following the methods of the renowned GRIPS Theater in Berlin, whose founder Volker Ludwig has already visited the group in Tbilisi. They are curently performing three plays – two adaptations of plays by Volker Ludwig and GRIPS Theater “სახლობანა” (original title “Mann O Mann”) and “შავი ნისლი” (original title “Dicke Luft”) and their own play “თამაში”. So far, around 800 children saw their plays. The group has also been performing their plays at the Tskaltubo Art Festival, Goethe Institute Tbilisi. In the first year they received kind support from Women’s Fund in Georgia and the following years, from DVV International. More information on the work of AITSONA DAITSONA can be found on their facebook page
