We have to stick together
A film project in times of crisis, to promote and accompany cultural dialogue between young people from Constance. In cooperation with the Youth Centre Constance.
In times of Corona, public life is largely at a standstill, general freedom of movement is severely restricted and people are ordered to maintain social distance and keep their distance. These are measures that have serious consequences and implications for all sections of the population, but especially for children and young people.
Society is preoccupied at all levels with the permanent issue of the Corona virus, which is spreading worldwide. The young generation is also involved in this fixation of topics and thoughts, they cannot escape it and their everyday life changes fundamentally.
Young people are confronted with worries and fears, with uncertainty and insecurity, as well as existential questions during their time of development. What is new is the experience of dealing with this overpowering pressure of topics and reality, which draws all attention to itself and goes against adolescent dynamics and topics. The crisis has a serious character and the young generation is confronted with risks and uncertainties in a new everyday life that they have not experienced before. This applies to the way they deal with their own emotional worlds and those experienced in their social environment, as well as those conveyed by the media.
The project has set itself the task of giving young people the opportunity to present their experiences of their everyday life in Corona times via theatre stories and dance through creative social work.
Over a period of eight weeks, the young people deal with the topic artistically. In this process, texts, choreographies and theatre scenes are created. The entire course of the project is accompanied by a camera team and recorded as a film documentary.
