The festival “Junge Triebe” to mobilize and bring together existing local resources. It serves as an exchange and inspiration to the artistic work of young people. Young artists learn about other types of art, find overlaps with their own form of expression and discover new aspects of their development. To meet Parkour runners on artists, rappers drama and actors do Breakdance, different subcultures meet and set apart. New visions arise and expand the horizons of the young artists. The festival wants to make works of local and regional artists 14-27 years of age visible and present (amateurs and semi-professionals). The target group, are among the participants and spectators, consists of Bielefeld adolescents and young people from the region aged 14 to 27 years who are actively creative or artistic work.
The festival is home to home to that make it possible to get a sense of graffiti art, breakdancing, rap or theater for little money many workshops. In addition to local artists, national and international professionals will be invited to give their productions impulses for the local scene.
Each year the festival offers different formats such as performances of different groups of young people, developing his own show or staging, exhibitions, workshops for young people, Breakdance Battle, parties with school bands or a day of shooting.
In early summer 2010, we conducted various cultural events for and with young people through, inter alia, a theater workshop for students, a reading, a guest performance of a youth theater group. The staging of the “Iliad” under the title “Heroes” is the first production of subcultural encounter with professional performers and different youth culture groups from Bielefeld and the neighboring region, which in the autumn of 2010 had premiere.
The exciting joint work meant that young people discovered the theater laboratory as a place for their culture and expected more offers. The response from colleagues, competitors and spectators showed that here is a need exists to provide young people’s creativity a bigger platform in Bielefeld. Since we have experience with the implementation of major projects and youth festivals, we will be able to realize such a project.
With the production “Heroes” was i.a. the youth group of theater laboratories. Young people meet with professional instruction once a week to learn the basic techniques of theater work. With the production “fence rider” youth group has set a first artistic signs in 2011th The youth group of the theater laboratory has presented at the festival not only first scenes of their work, but also active in shaping the realization of “Young shoots”. Our educational approach is participatory also.
Young Art – Many Facets
In the festival “Young shoots” meet very different art forms. In the field of literature, there is the established format Poetry Slam. But we want to develop their own new formats with reading, poetry, theater and rap as crossover. In the field of dance created alongside Hip Hop and Breakdance also room for other forms of exercise such Parkours and also to play a strong role as a leading media along the theater.
The theater laboratory as a venue for music concerts? This question has been debated within the team long. But the young people are mobilizing mainly on concerts and parties and so we will also integrate the local scene with. Planned are i.a. also concerts that get unfamiliar ingredients with theatrical scenes and dance acts and so also interested in the music lovers for other art forms. Film and video is an important area for the young people and will have a permanent place in the festival.
