Jugendbildnis

(Portrait of Youth)
Variable cast, for ages 14 +

What defines youth, what is memory? Katharina Schmitt’s play takes the spectator on a museum tour of puberty, with eleven objects. The objects on display are on loan by different owners. The resulting portrait of youth is as varied and controversial as the statements of the owners. Their memories revolve around an elusive center of observation: the child, the teenage girl – while the objects take on an ever-stronger life of their own.
