Salvador Dalì, Catalan painter among the most influential artists of the 20th century, was well known for his extravagant attitudes. Master of ironic, provocative and dreamlike Surrealism, Dalì had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with some of the great names from the last century, among them Federico Garcia Lorca, Luis Buñuel, Pablo Picasso and Juan Mirò.
A member of the Surrealist group led by Breton, Dalì has left his mark on the history of art with his fantastic images born out of the constant agitation of his restless subconscious.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
