New Theatre Festival for young Audience Switzerland


New Theatre Festival for young Audience Switzerland

From 21 February to 03 March 2018, the first biennial of jungspund – Theater Festival for Young Audiences will take place in St. Gallen. For eleven days, Eastern Switzerland will be the focus of theater for young audiences. With two premieres, two co-productions, and eight recently created productions, the jungspund Festival represents a cross-section of the artistic diversity of the Swiss theater scene.
Over the past one and a half years, the six members of our program group have traveled together across Switzerland, seeing approximately forty productions for young theater audiences. The twelve productions we invited to participate in the festival come from all three language regions in Switzerland, providing a varied program and encompassing the most diverse forms of theater, from dance theater to figure theater and beyond to classic spoken drama.
The jungspund Festival will open with «The Teachers’ Room – A Passion», the most recent production of the Vorstadttheater Basel, which was created as a co-production with the Festival. A further co-production, hosted by the Lausanne Cie Philippe Saire, is the magically playful dance performance «Hocus Pocus», a visual experience in between dance, theater, and installation.
In addition, two premieres will be celebrated at the Festival: «One Two Three Over» by the FigurenTheater St.Gallen, which reveals the eternal cycle of life in beautifully poetic images. «Robbers’ Hands» – a youth production of the Theater St.Gallen – tells the story of two friends in search of friendship, love, and identity. Also not to be missed are eight further stories, which are exciting, poetic, dramatic as well as quirky, characterized by fantasy, contemporary issues, and artistic diversity.
The Festival center at Lokremise with its café and bar is open daily, offering food and drink and inviting encounters, discussions, congregating, and celebrations. At the Tauschkiosk à Gogo (Exchange Kiosk à Gogo), visitors can practice haggling. The Jungspundband provides for the music under the direction of theater musician Andi Peter with various project formats. Additionally, the fringe program offers various workshops, music, and artist talks.
Advance ticket sales for all events will start on 4 December 2017. Registration for school classes is possible at www.kklick.ch.

We are looking forward to suspenseful performances, lively discussions, and unforgettable festival days with our audiences!

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Warm regards
The jungspund Team
