Winner of Reumert Award 2015 in the category: Special prize of the year.
Youth is a performance about the most horrible and the most amazing time in one’s life. About that moment in time when the big, important existential questions crowd the mind and starts shaping your identity. It is about love, insecurity, ambitions, anxiety, social relations and life choices.
The auditorium of Republique Theater is rebuilt into a campsite with sand and a forest lake, and each one of the audience members is invited to accommodate a tent with a young person. Together they experience a “theatrical day”, where everything can happen, and the phenomenon of youth is explored into details. Join 30 young people age 15-20.
Youth was performed 21 February – 13 March 2015 at Teater Republique in Copenhagen.
“The illusion, the sensory impressions and the encounter with the young people contribute to a courageous confrontation with one’s self and one’s own feelings.”
