Plan(et) B

Young Europe III

Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe 2 October 2019

As part of Young Europe III, Badisches Staatstheater in Karlsruhe (Germany) collaborated with the theatres Pesti Magyar Szinház in Budapest (Hungary) and Slovak National Drama Theatre in Bratislava (Slovakia). Together, they researched the views of young people today across their three countries. They have each created a performance inspired by young people’s ideas of identity and their visions of the future.

Stefan Hornbach writes the text for the German side of this three-country co-production. After his classroom play Schwalbenkönig, which has already been performed over 80 times in schools in Karlsruhe, you will now experience the second work of the author, who was awarded the Osnabrück Dramatist Prize, in the Jungen Staatstheater.
