Relevant and Challenging Productions for Young People
TaO!’s regular theatre programme offers relevant and challenging productions for young people aged 10 and above. We want to familiarise our visitors with the medium of theatre, draw them in and take them to different worlds, while presenting modern, highly topical theatre performances created for and with young people.
Our professional productions often feature young actors alongside established artists. These not only provide authentic identification figures for our audience, but also help us stay in touch with young people’s issues and ways of speaking. Collaborating with young performers also means being close to people whose concept of art has not yet fully formed. A young generation’s theatre wants to reflect on and work with their fresh views of the world, making them accessible to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Our repertoire includes self-developed productions and contemporary plays on current issues, as well as stimulating adaptations of classic literature aimed at actively involving young audiences. In all of our work, we try to explore new artistic forms and aesthetics, testing the possibilities of contemporary theatre.
