THEATRE OF THE FUTURE

ABOUT THEATRE OF THE FUTURE

 

From September 2021 NTH started to facilitate workshops for youth in three different Youth centres in Helsinki.

Our main goal is to prove to the youngsters that theatre is enjoyable, is a community, and an inclusive art form that could be done by anyone. We offer theatre workshops for youngsters (12-18) for free. New Theatre Helsinki aims to work with students both without and with theatrical experience in English and in Finnish (depending on the facilitators and the groups needs). 

 

In the workshops we try to introduce a huge variety of different theatrical genres. We emphasize that theatre could be a lot of things: different ways of thinking, different materials, different stories, and the participants has an effect on it. The youngsters has the power to make theatre, to introduce and represent their narratives. Together with the participants (age 12-18) we experiment with different ways of opening their stories, creating their own narratives. The workshops are pointing out that every participants experience is just as valid and showing ways how can they reach out a possible audience with it. In practice, that means that we are showing a colourful pallet of different genres such as movement based theatre, dance theatre, puppetry, or more realistic forms of theatre. For NTH groups theatre is also about community and thinking.

ABOUT US

FINNISH

NEW THEATRE HELSINKI

New Theatre Helsinki (NTH) on vuosille 2020–2023 sijoittuva esittävän taiteen hanke, jonka aikana Helsinkiin luodaan uusi esittävän taiteen kulttuuriselle moninaisuudelle omistettu esityskeskus. NTH on syntynyt tarpeesta saada yhteiskuntamme kielellinen ja kulttuurinen monimuotoisuus näkyväksi esittävän taiteen sisällöissä, tekijöissä ja yleisöissä. 

 

New Theatre Helsinki -hankkeen päämääränä on toimia siltana ja alustana eritaustaisten esittävän taiteen ammattilaisten, moninaisten yleisöjen ja olemassa olevien teatteritalojen väliselle yhteistyölle ja kohtaamiselle. Verkostoitumisen myötä hanke ja tuleva esityskeskus luovat uusia yhteistoiminnan muotoja pääkaupunkiseudulla, koko Suomessa ja muissa Pohjoismaissa.

 

New Theatre Helsinki -hankkeen vastuullisina vetäjinä toimivat Helsingissä 2007 perustettu kansainvälinen teatterikollektiivi European theatre collective (etc) sekä vuodesta 2005 Helsingissä toiminut fyysisen teatterin eri muotoja yhdistelevä Teatteri Metamorfoosi. 

 

Entistä inklusiivisemman esittävän taiteen kentän luomme yhdessä me kaikki – taiteen ammattilaiset, katsojat ja kokijat, yhteisöt ja yhteenliittymät. Matkalla uuteen esityskeskukseen järjestämämme avoimia keskusteluja, kohtaamisia, työpajoja ja esityksiä vaihtuvissa tiloissa ja kumppaniteattereissa. Seuraa meitä ja tule mukaan!

ENGLISH

NEW THEATRE HELSINKI

 

New Theatre Helsinki (NTH) is a performing arts initiative running between 2020–2023. The initiative’s purpose is to create a new venue dedicated to the cultural diversity of the performing arts field. NTH was born from the need to make the linguistic and cultural diversity of our society visible in the field of the performing arts: in its contents, makers and audiences.

 

The New Theatre Helsinki aims to be a meeting point and a platform for co-operation between the arts professionals and audiences from diverse backgrounds as well as the existing theatres. The project will also create new networks and forms of co-working within the capital region, Finland, and the other Nordic countries.

 

NTH is led by two Helsinki-based theatre associations well experienced in working in the field of performing arts and interculturality. European Theatre Collective (ETC) is an international theatre collective, formed in 2007. Teatteri Metamorfoosi, formed in 2005, focuses on physical theatre.


To build a more diverse and inclusive performing arts scene we need you all – spectators, performers, and arts professionals, communities, networks, and coalitions. During the project, we’ll organise open talks, meetings, workshops, and performances in different venues and at our partner theatres. You are most welcome to follow and join us.
