A production with the secondary students from Zurich
To our great joy, we can look back on an entire series of productions featuring school students on the Studiobühne stage. Each of them was unique, full of overwhelming energy and intensity. #Romeo_Julia, #Sandmann, #Rituals, #Faust, and #Giselle, this time we have chosen the story of Peer Gynt as the starting point for this year’s youth project. Experienced artists will contribute their expertise as they work with the youths, as they, over the course of several months, create a performance together that features dance, acting, the voice, and music.
Peer Gynt is an individual who, in the search for happiness, travels through a variety of worlds, searching for his own path – at times audaciously, but with courage and good sense. Sometimes he has trouble distinguishing between reality from fiction, and only at the end does he understand what true love really means. This artistic examination of issues such as longing, pipe dreams, reality, optimism and pessimism, boldness, courage and aimlessness, and the search for one’s place in society, love, friendship, and acceptance: all of these are formative issues youths confront on their journey to becoming adults. As we look at these issues under professional guidance, students from two classes from Zurich will develop their own version of the story, in which Peer – despite numerous challenges – ultimately emerges as the winner.
In cooperation with the Jungen Literatur-Labor (JuLL)
