A performance by Münchner Kammerspiele at Haus der Kunst
sick and tired of people talking about us and not letting us get a
word in! Cause we’re angry and we’ve been let down. By the adult
generation and by politicians who avoid taking responsibility.
Democracy is not something to be taken for granted! Injustice only
ends when those who profit from it change too! Urgent measures have
to be taken against climate disaster! We may not be professionals,
but we do recognise global connections. And we can no longer afford
your pessimism! Stop saying it’s all too late. Stop saying it’s
all too complicated! Do not make it so easy for yourselves! Stop
talking about us as if our protests don’t concern you, as if your
future isn’t at stake! Stop being complacent about mass youth
protests and believing you can still turn things around! We have news
for you: we won’t be able to save the future! Not if you don’t
listen to us. And not if you don’t understand that listening isn’t
enough. You have to take action. With us! We have taken to the
streets, risk being suspended from school, invest a lot of time and
energy and have organised ourselves. And what are you doing? You with
the privilege of being able to take action. Do something! Stop
staring! Join the demos!”
Together with more than 20 young people, Verena Regensburger and her team have developed a stage piece on political participation, overcoming powerlessness and a future that concerns us all.
The performances on October 9, 2019 and October 18, 2019 are for school classes.
