Experience theatre up close and get actively involved! Anyone aged between 12 and 22 can try their hand at performing with the Junges DT, meet other theatre fans and discover new forms of drama.
As usual, we are opening the season with a staged reading in cooperation with LesArt. The novel YOU ARE [NOT] SAFE HERE
, nominated for the German Children’s Literature Award, premieres on 30 August in the Box.
In the youth clubs, a production is developed together over a number of months. Rehearsals take place once a week and on several weekends, and the production is then performed three times in the Box. In our camp WAS HÄLT UNS [ZUSAMMEN]? (WHAT HOLDS US [TOGETHER]?)
, the autumn half-term is turned into a festival that takes over the entire DT. And participants’ acting muscles can be flexed once a month in the THEATREGYM
where DT artists and actors work as coaches. No previous experience is required to take part – a passion and time for theatre are enough! JUNGES DT – LIVE & DIGITAL
Since March 2020, Junges DT has been developing a variety of artistic formats and narrative forms with and for young people which have allowed art and solidarity to continue despite the pandemic. Among other things, this has led to a WhatsApp drama; livestreamed plays; a backstage video series; an interactive puzzle game (invited to the 2021 Theatertreffen der Jugend); a podcast subscription for wonderful moments; two radio plays; seven live monologues on Instagram; a web series; and a multimedia and a digital classroom play. You can listen to or watch many of these events on our website at “Junges DT Digital
”. Even though we are looking forward to in-person meetings at the DT itself, we will continue to use and develop these digital resources.
