Die Bademattenrepublik

Play development based on motifs by Valerie Wyatt

Raising your voice, making it heard — But what happens when this basic right is suddenly lost? Two actors have founded a state to defy a monstrous danger and invite children to become its first citizens. Together they dive into an adventure of intergalactic proportions, playfully testing social coexistence and determining who decides, and thus take on the small issue of saving the world.

JES is breaking new ground with an interactive mobile project: based on a children’s non-fiction book by Valerie Wyatt, two actors take two primary school classes into a joint democratic adventure in a gymnasium: playfully and embedded in an exciting story, the children experience the encouraging feeling that they are a serious part of society. That it is worthwhile to raise one’s own voice — and to fight for this fundamental right.
