Art and theatre project for youngsters from the cultural metropolis Ruhr
pottfiction is a cross-city youth theatre project which was first implemented throughout the whole Ruhr area in the context of the European Capital of Culture, RUHR.2010. As a unique project at a crossroads between art and theatre, it generates a creative space for young people to design and implement visions for a better world, together with artists and theatre makers. To this purpose, six independent and municipal theatres from the Ruhr area – Consol Theater Gelsenkirchen, HELIOS Theater Hamm, KJT Dortmund, Junges Schauspiel Bochum, Theater Kohlenpott Herne and Theater Hagen – have joined forces.
From January to May there will be workshops which form a bridge between art and cultural education and result in a public presentation. Watch out, pottfiction may soon perform in your city, too!
pottfiction is sponsored by the Ministry for Family, Children, Youth, Culture and Sports of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
