CHILDREN’S AND YOUTH THEATRE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
International Children’s and Youth Theatre Festival in Subotica has been gathering outstanding experts of theatre art for many years. At this festival, a forum is a place where numerous expert opinions on theatre arts for children and youth are being exchanged.
Children deserve the best exemplars of human experience translated into stories told in theater language. Those stories, if delivered in an exciting way, such as Scheherazade’s story, can stimulate children’s imagination, teach them life skills, and acquaint them with different human natures.
Adults are tasked with making growing up a process in which children, with the help of theatre stories, acknowledge and accept the worth of human virtue. Analysis of quality and ways of delivering stories for children and youth in the 21st century is indeed the reason for the gathering of the theatrologists and theater artists from different countries at this forum in Subotica. The aim of the theatrologists is to point out possibilities and establish principles, through analysis, by which theater artists can build a better, more colorful stage-language for a delicate audience, as youngsters are.
This year, a forum called Children’s and Youth Theatre in the 21st Century, brings experts, the theatrologists and theatre artists from many countries together, in hope of drawing conclusions which will refresh, enhance and empower creators in their pursuit of virtue as an imperative of theatrical effect on the young audience.
