Young Europe III

Theater Magdeburg, Staatstheater Braunschweig, "Marin Sorescu" National Theatre of Craiova Next premiere: 08 October 2020

A gameplay developed in cooperation between Theatre Magdeburg (Germany), Staatstheater Braunschweig (Germany) and the National Theatre "Marin Sorescu" in Craiova (Romania). The immersive gameplay "DEMOCRISIS" is based on interviews with 14 to 20-year-old people from Braunschweig, Magdeburg and Craiova and asks the question: What would we lose if we put our democracy at risk?


A right-wing populist party is the third strongest force in the German Bundestag, the British want to leave the EU, neo-Nazi demonstrations are taking place in East Germany, a confused president wants to build a wall: What's going on? A clearly noticeable jolt towards nationalism is currently shaking our basic democratic order. Alternative facts and hardened fronts make the necessary dialogue impossible – are we endangering our democracy?
