A youth in lockdown and a planet in fever: The Piccolo Theater Youth Club wants to talk about it! In their production "Verdunklung", the group dealt with the climate catastrophe. When they tackled the topic of the pandemic for the next play, they realized that the basic theme remained: the fatal impact of man on his environment. This is how the sequel "Verdunklung II" came into being. The young people show that the pandemic theme is part of the climate theme and how capitalism is putting the future of the young generation and all generations to come at risk.
This production is the first by young people for young people invited to the festival. The Piccolo Theater has one of the broadest creative club offerings in the German children's and youth theater landscape, with 14 different offerings in dance, puppetry, and theater for young people ages four and up.
After all performances, there will be several follow-up conversations lasting a maximum of 90 minutes. The talks will be divided up on the spot. There is always a talkback in English (or with English interpretation) for this guest performance, as well as spatially accessible options. Information about the presenters can be found here.
