Just Thirteen (2018)
What are two American teenagers up to?
The twins Katy and Tyler have just turned thirteen. They are finding out that life gets complicated when the body is changing. Emotions are on a roller coaster and friends and family seem to be going crazy. Tyler is surprised that his gaming buddy would rather go out with a girl then play with him. Katy struggles with school work while trying to keep her relationship with her Best Friend Forever from becoming Big Finished Forever. Helpful talks with mom and dad only make things more painful. Katy would love to just disappear and wait for her thirteenth year to be over- but there are some things in life that you just have to get through...

iTALK 2021

17 year old G (known to their* friends and family as Ros) explore themselves and their identity by creating a space online to share their thoughts. Lanny just started at the same school. He is lonely and wants to fit in but due to the lockdown making friends is difficult. Playing music on his guitar Dylan is the only thing getting him through.

In a chance meeting after school pre-lockdown Lanny and G discover a common interest in music. They get to know each other better on social media and online platforms throughout the pandemic. Lanny becomes worried about G’s well-being and visits them during lockdown. During an online class, fellow student Olly presses Lanny for details about this meeting with G, and Lanny allows him to believe that they had s*x. Gossip spreads. G ends their friendship with Lanny and continues to struggle with their own journey and the lack of awareness of the people around them. G’s refusal to forgive him forces Lanny to start reflecting on his behaviour and what kind of person he wants to be.

iTalk
Premiere: 07.10.2021
Director: Rebecca Scott
Text: Charlie Dupré

Ros and Lanny go to the same school, although being in different year groups, have only noticed each other from afar. After a chance encounter leaves them both weak at the knees, they are keen to see where their connection might lead. But Lockdown has hit! And, for now at least, their budding romance can only blossom virtually. How can they continue nourishing it, given the new limitations? And will social media be a help or a hindrance, in their bid to discover who they really are? iTalk is a dynamic new multimedia musical play that examines the effects of the recent restrictions on young people’s ability to connect with the world around them.

Wenn alles anders wäre…

… würden wir uns heute gemeinsam mit dem Platypus Theater fragen was Schulbücher nachts so treiben, wenn keiner hinschaut.

Die Buch-Held*innen dieses Stücks erwachen zum Leben! Während sie sich auf ein neues Schuljahr freuen und darauf hoffen, an wissbegierige Schüler*innen ausgegeben zu werden, erfahren sie, dass sie gegen neuere Exemplare ausgetauscht werden sollen. Eines ist klar: sie sind noch zu jung um zu Toilettenpapier verarbeitet zu werden! Da bleibt nur eins: davonlaufen! Schnell in den Urlaubskoffer der Englischlehrerin gesprungen und zurück in Bücher verwandelt! So kommt es, dass die „Buchmenschen“ in den USA landen und ihr Wissen über das Land im richtigen Leben anwenden müssen - das Problem ist nur: das Leben hält sich nicht immer an die Schulbücher… Da ist in vielen Situationen die Hilfe des jungen Publikums gefragt!

Der JugendKulturService gibt die Nominierten für den IKARUS 2020 bekannt und setzt damit ein Zeichen für die große Bedeutung des Kinder- und Jugendtheaters in Zeiten der derzeitigen Pandemie.

Die Jury ist besorgt, dass die Kinder und Jugendtheater aufgrund der notwendigen Abstandsregelungen und den möglichen Verzicht von Bildungseinrichtungen auf außerschulische Aktivitäten im nächsten Schuljahr bildungspolitisch an Bedeutung verlieren und wirtschaftlich in eine Schieflage geraten könnten, von der sie sich nur schwer erholen. Die kulturelle Bildung hat in den letzten Jahren einen besonderen Stellenwert erreicht und darf aufgrund anderer Prioritäten jetzt nicht zurückgestellt werden. Theater live zu erleben ist für Kinder und Jugendliche ein besonderes emotionales Erlebnis, gerade auch nach der langen Zeit, in denen sie auf Kontakte außer Haus verzichten mussten. Die Kinder und Jugendlichen brauchen einen Raum, der ihnen dabei hilft, ihre Emotionen auszuleben, Erlebnisse gemeinsam zu verarbeiten und wieder in den Alltag zurück zu finden.

Die nominierten Stücke sind:
Albirea | ATZE Musiktheater | 10+
Das hässliche Entlein | Zirkusmaria | 4+
Der Zinnsoldat und die Papiertänzerin | Theater an der Parkaue - Junges Staatstheater Berlin | 7+
Maria Stuart | Theater an der Parkaue - Junges Staatstheater Berlin | 16+
Mitgefühl und ohne | FELD Theater für junges Publikum | 6+
Safestay Hostel | Platypus Theater | 15+

Herzlichen Glückwunsch allen Nominierten!
Judith Shoemaker, overworked but absolutely thankful, blowing kisses on behalf of Monstress Mess to all the supporters of our campaign thus far!
