Onassis Youth Festival 2018 / ONASSIS CULTURAL CENTRE

Onassis Youth Festival 2018

13-15 APR 2018
Upper Stage
The festival for our most dynamic generation: teenagers. We give a voice to those who are already our future today.
Entrance to the event is free and on a first come, first served basis.
Imagine Antigone as a teenager quarrelling with her family, Oedipus falling in love with his teacher, Helen of Troy suing for divorce, or Prometheus punished for doing what he thought was right... Do revolution, romance, hate, arguments, war or injustice ever get old? The festival for our most dynamic age-group, teenagers, breathes new life into ancient texts by inviting star directors and theatre companies to work with secondary-school children aged 12–18. Get over your fear of ancient drama and own the texts. Find your voice in the classics and tell the world how you feel just as loudly as you want. That's why we're staging the Onassis Youth Festival 2018—so you can find, unlock, share and release your potential and your emotions onstage.
