At the Young Europe project kick-off in 2018, we asked ourselves: What occupies the mind of the young generation today? How can we develop new research-based theatre experiences that meet young people’s spirit and make theatre relevant for Europe’s youth? For the past year, the pandemic has shaken up our world and dominated young people’s lives. This has given our initial questions a whole new relevance. More than ever, we need to open perspectives, create visions and discuss how we can bring theatre (back) to the young people. How can we make or reinvent theatre as a space where young people gather? How can we reinforce youth theatre as part of everyone's education and create sustainable access to culture in locked-down and reopened societies? And what are the new emerging artistic forms and stories so very needed to (re)connect with the European youth of today?
