TRAIN - stations, stories and travels

German-Dutch youth theater project

Das Letzte Kleinod and LikeMinds, 2016

The young theater-makers of Das Letzte Kleinod (Schiffdorf, Germany) and LikeMinds (Amsterdam, Netherlands) are working together on a project titled “TRAIN - Stations, Stories and Travels”. In this project the young people collected stories from people who are travelling by train and from these texts and interviews they develop scenes and a presentation. The young people traveled in mixed German-Dutch groups by train through Northern Germany and by tram through Amsterdam. They interviewed other travelers, looking for stories of people who are on the move. Where are they from, where are they going? What memories, experiences and expectations they have in their luggage? Which energy moves them? The teenagers met different people, different languages and very different stories.

The interviews form the basic material for the presentations with text, movement and music. The interviews were put into dialogues or monologues by the youngsters who were supported by a professional German-Dutch directing team. The young actors will present the performance at the train-station in Geestenseth and the spectators will travel with them from scene to scene as in a station theatre.

First Touring loop of Generation to Generation & IETM international meeting

On the 15th of April 2016 the Generation2Generation project kicked-off in Amsterdam. Youngsters from Slovenia, Germany and The Netherlands gathered to present their performances, to work with theatre sensei Benji Reid and to join IETM-debates on the hows and the why's of the 'next generation'. The audience was a gathering of representatives of the professional field of youth theatre in Amsterdam and The Netherlands. This grassroot-circuit works together on a national scale, but the G2G-kick-off gave them also the opportunity to get in touch with professionals from abroad.

The deputy major of Amsterdam, Miss Kajsa Ollongren, gave a short keynote speech on the importance of European collaboration. According to her, especially the fact that young people learn to collaborate with contemporaries from abroad, will eventually lead to a sustainable mode of international understanding. For this kick-off the aim was to let the young people meet each other and get to know the differences and similarities in language, working methods and visions on life and the world. In all kinds of ways they learned more then the G2G-team could have expected beforehand.
The kick-off programme was set up parallel to the plenary meeting of the IETM. Two debate-sessions on the 'next generation' were produced by the G2G-team. Some of the Likeminds' Factory attended the session as a speaker. More on this session is to be found on here.
