Description of the event
Since 1994, the International Youth Theater Festival EXPLOSIVE! has been giving theater-groups from European and Non-European Countries the chance of presenting their productions to a young and youthful-minded audience.
Groups from the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Spain, France, Poland, the United States, and South Africa as well as from various German cities have made their appearance on stage since then and have been welcomened by an interested and exited audience.
Young and talented amateurs at the performing arts are introduced, who either work with professional direction or have found innovative, self-dependent ways of expression all on their own. They need not heed the traditions of classical language-, dance-, or musical-theater. Instead, their approach should point to new ways of performing. Productions developing strategies against social and ethnical discrimination are of special interest, as well as those which envelop the existential questions of adolescence and bring them to artful expression.
