THEATRE CAFÉ 2014-15 - a pan-European movement of plays for young audiences
Date du début: 1 nov. 2013,

THEATRE CAFÉ 2014-15 is a pan-European movement addressing the problem that the best new plays for young audiences are often seen only in the country, and language, in which they were written. 4 European theatre companies will select 16 contemporary play texts and 4 full productions for young audiences, from a total of 15 countries, to translate and circulate around Europe. At events in 5 cities, the plays will be presented to young people and theatre professionals. Play texts will be presented as staged readings in specially-designed ‘theatre cafés’, where audiences sit in café-style seating and actors ‘pop up’ around them - an informal and intimate way for young people to experience new plays. The concept has been evolved through 9 previous Theatre Cafés, including 2007‘s Theatre Café Europe, funded by the Culture 2000 Programme. After the readings, post-show discussions will open up intercultural dialogue around subject matter, form and how plays cross borders. Industry Symposia will foster new professional relationships. And a European Writers Lab will commission new plays from 4 emerging European writers, assigning each a mentor from another country.Ambassador schemes will directly involve local young people and the programme culminates in an International Youth Encounter, in which young people from 4 countries stage the plays developed through the European Writers Lab. Meanwhile, Theatre Café Digital, a new online resource, will host a library of plays in multiple languages and connect artists across Europe.TimetableFebruary 2014: Theatre Café London March 2014: Theatre Café OsloDecember 2014: Theatre Café BerlinDecember 2014: Theatre Café FrankfurtMay 2015: Theatre Café AmsterdamAugust 2015: International Youth Encounter, BerlinEach event lasts between 2 and 7 days.The long-term goal of THEATRE CAFÉ 2014-15 is a new movement around cross-cultural collaboration, creating and circulating the very best new theatre for young audiences.
