International Youth Theatre Festival - EXPLOSIVE de Schlachthof Kulturzentrum Schlachthof Findorffstr.51 28215 Bremen Germany
Since 1994, the biennial International Youth Theater Festival EXPLOSIVE! has been giving theater-groups from European and Non-European Countries the chance of presenting their productions to a young and youthful-minded audience. Young and talented amateurs in the performing arts are introduced, who either work with professional direction or have found innovative, self-dependent ways of expression all on their own. They need not heed the traditions of classical language, dance, or musical theater. Instead, their approach should point to new ways of performing. Productions developing strategies against social and ethnical discrimination are of special interest, as well as those which envelop the existential questions of adolescence and bring them to artful expression.
