About the project
FUTURE TELLING is international youth exchange program. Partner countries in project are Slovenia, Croatia, Israel, Belgium, Germany and Finland. The main reason for designing the youth exchange project was the need for the implementation of new knowledge, skills and methods in work with youth in theatre. Participants from each of the partnering countries (8 from each country, 48 in total) will be involved in the exchange that will take place in Izola, Slovenia (26 August – 1 September 2018). A range of different approaches to work with youth in theatre and new work methods in youth theatre (from physical theatre, devised theatre, performance art, …) will be presented during the exchange. Each of the partners will provide a folk tale, which will be reinterpreted and actualized by participants in accordance with new gained knowledge and skills. Participants will work in mixed groups and will present their work and work in progress to other groups under the supervision of professional mentor. The presentations will serve as an insight to different methods and work flow that will be used while working on folk tales form six different countries.
The main goal of the project is to present new methods to participants. They will gain new theatre knowledge and skills on how to re-interpret and actualize the content (in this case a folk tale). Young participants will share their newly gained knowledge in their local environments to the other members of their theatre groups. The skills will help individuals and groups to raise the quality level in youth theatre production.
Partnering organizations will form a network and will invite new organizations to join in. The network
will serve for exchange of groups and best practices in youth theatre.
