38 children and teens from Frankfurt, Rüsselheim and Bad Homburg will participate in the festival as “Starke Stücke” experts. In four groups, they are preparing themselves intensively since September/October 2017 for the festival in March 2018, aiming to explore theatre in all its myriad facets and to find out for themselves what a “strong piece of theatre” really is.
During the festival, the “Starke Stücke” experts will be present at various venues and events. At shows and post-performance talks, as advisors for groups and spectators visiting the festival, as well as at various other occasions, they will actively contribute to the festival, by providing a special perspective on the “Starke Stücke” – their own points of view as 10-16 year old observers.
The groups engage in parallel preparations and occasionally come together for joint projects.
