ID BABYLON is a theatre project exploring the experiences of teenagers across Europe. A group of young people in each of the partner countries will make and perform an artistic work which will tour in its ‘home’ country and to one other partner country.
All the works will also feature in a Youth theatre festival at Théâtre du Pélican – in Clermont-Ferrand, France. A piece of documentary theatre written by professional playwright Nadège Prugnard, with six of the young people will be created in the second phase of the project and will tour internationally. It will feature a cast of young people from each partner country. In addition, a digital exhibition documenting and celebrating the whole project will be created and widely disseminated.
The project partners formed ID: BABYLON in response to issues impacting teenagers today, including the rise of extremism and nationalism and issues around migration and the movement of people. Our vision for the project is the development of transnational identity and values and a sense of European citizenship for young people, which will help them to look beyond the borders of their origin.
