The project Young Europe emerges within the framework of cooperation between the SND Drama Company and the European Theatre Convention (ETC). As one of the key ETC projects, the project aims to work with young spectators and facilitate new stage texts reflecting the themes faced by the young generation. Young Europe is an original team that brings together nine theatres – Theater Magdeburg, Deutsches Theater Berlin, Staatstheater Braunschweig, Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe (Germany), De Toneelmakerij (The Netherlands), Teatrul National Marin Sorescu Craiova (Romania), Weöres Sándor Szinház, Pesti Magyar Szinház (Hungary), and the Slovak National Theatre, by arranging them into groups of three. The SND directs partners are thus Pesti Magyar Szinház and Badische Staatstheater Karlsruhe.
The project gave rise to a new play and production. Drawing from research into teenagers aged 12 – 18, the play is tailor-made for teenage audiences. Our group reflects findings of the research in the three countries. The research output is presented as a journey of a young male – female character who are overcoming their fears, address indecisiveness and long for values. The Slovak play is written by Alexandra Salmela. The production, complemented with a learning programme, is designated for learners enrolled in secondary schools and in the final year of elementary schools.
