ALL DAY 

Showreel: Strange Things | Cudzô

Streamed Stage Play by Slovak National Drama Theatre, Bratislava/Slovakia
Free Admission

 

Young people are faced with all the challenges, anxieties, fears, uncertainties, and adrenaline that are part of an adventurous quest for the rescue of the world. The play portrays a world after a catastrophe where all adults have disappeared. Resources are used up, and it seems that the internet is about to stop working, too. How will the young people manage in the new context and what world will they create? Where will they look for their families and friends? “Strange Things” is a witty encounter with what we find alien and what we (like to) fear. A play about what we do and don’t find strange.

360° Game Walk by “Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova/Romania 
Free Admission
 

A right-wing populist party is the third strongest force in the German Bundestag, the British left the EU, neo-Nazi demonstrations are taking place in East Germany, a confused president wanted 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?

A live theatre game developed in co-operation between Theater Magdeburg, Staatstheater Braunschweig and the “Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova. 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?

In 2035, the consequences of climate change have become reality, living conditions on planet Earth have become uncomfortable - but luckily there is the global corporation PlanetTech. With their help worse development can be avoided. Jona Assault, however, is fighting the corporation underground - what is he up to, and is the catastrophe perhaps already closer than everyone thought? In the immersive gameplay "DEMOCRISIS. (K)ein Ausweg" the players are exposed to a possible future scenario. What would we do to save the climate? How important are our democratic values to us? A highly explosive game on the topics of democracy, nationalism and eco-totalitarianism.  
 
A 360º game tour was developed for the Young Europe Festival "To:gather", in which all participants explore the surroundings of the original venue, Lokpark Braunschweig, with the help of a virtual tour. An integrated part of the production is a subsequent workshop with a follow-up discussion.

Streamed classroom play by Junges DT / Deutsches Theater Berlin/Germany
Free Admission

 

Students disappear. The recruitment videos of a masked girl, Esther, are circulating on social media. She demands immediate political participation. More and more young people join her collective. Who will listen to you when you are still a minor? What forms of participation do we need? And what if Fridays for Future is just the beginning? Wilke Weermann spoke with Berlin pupils who are fighting for their future. The research material and interviews were used to create a classroom play about the political desires of young people.

Performance: Age of Rage

Streamed Stage Play by De Toneelmakerij, Amsterdam/The Netherlands
Free Admission

 

There’s a girl in a police cell, and she’s angry. She’s 16, and she’s smart. She didn’t even do much wrong, really, she reckons. All she did was throw a pie in a politician’s face. But then they pinned her down on the ground, arrested her and locked her up. But she’s already got enough reasons to be angry: her parents have been divorcing for the last year, she’s debt-relief poor, and every time she tries to form an opinion, she’s cut down again by her psychologists, teachers or classmates. “Age of Rage” is about a combative girl who’s trying all she can to move forward, but she keeps on getting dragged down. She wants to be heard, but nobody’s listening.

Streamed Stage Play by Weöres Sándor Színház, Szombathely/Hungary
Free Admission

 

In Hungary in the 2000s there was an astonishing number of murders committed by young people. We created a fictional documentary story in which we deliberately avoided obvious motives such as poverty, drug addiction or severe psychological stress. We were curious to see how seemingly consolidated, wealthy young people - much like those in ancient Greek tragedies - could commit the most serious crime: matricide. The story is told in the overlapping of the narratives of the sixteen-year-old high school girl Stuci, her nineteenyear-old friend Zsomer, and the monologues of her mother Erika, a fifty-four-year-old librarian.

The Fridays for Future movement and numerous renowned scientists agree: If our planet were a boat, it would soon be sinking. It’s time for a new generation to take the wheel. Because there is no planet B for us to escape to. But there may well be a plan B …

How do young people see how they can equip their lives in a world where there are no adults – perhaps because of an apocalyptic disaster? How can they communicate with each other, survive when there is no parental control over them?
