Young Theatre Makers 2017

CRITICAL THINKING THROUGH DRAMA

Young Theatre Makers is a bilingual learning scheme that uses play scripts as a framework for discussion and critical thinking. Intended for young people in schools and youth centres, Young Theatre Makers focuses on the process of analysing and understanding a play and work-in-progress staging in the theatre.

Showcase & Discussion at Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre Theatre

After two months of training, four participating schools will perform excerpts from two plays written by Swedish playwrights especially for young people. Performances will be followed up by in-depth discussion with audience participation.

  • Hyenas by Anders Duus
    This story follows a group of teenagers who are desperate to change their status and find their place in the world. It is about friendship, bullying and the fight for popularity.
  • Bye Bye Baby by Åsa Lindholm
    This play is about a group of young people, living in the era of social meida, who in different ways are struggling with life online.
