Do You Like Tomato Sauce? / 2.0

The play ‘Do You Like Tomato Sauce?’ will be performed as part of the theatre festival created as a result of the 2.0 project (European Youth Engagement Network 2.0), on 8 April at 8 p.m. on the Small Stage at the Youth Theatre. The play will be performed by project participants from Italy, and the festival is part of the Schools of the Future programme unit, which focuses on young people and their involvement in artistic, educational, and social activities.

About the play:

Why can we use purchase cheap high-quality products? What determines the price of a product? We will walk the fields of southern Italy, including ones where harvest the ‘red gold’: tomatoes. This is research on the exploitation of migrant and non-migrant labour: the stories of women and men behind the traditional, cosy notion of tomatoes.

About the festival:

The theatre festival, created within the 2.0 project, will be held from 5 to 8 April in Novi Sad high schools and Zone 021. By turning schools into art scenes and cultural institutions into centres of education, the ‘’ project engages young people who, through working with excellent artists as mentors, create their own content, i.e., theatre performances. Their topics are current and acceptable to a wider audience, and some of the frameworks for young people to create in include Euroscepticism, solidarity, fake news, ecology, anti-fascism, economy, and others.
Participants from each country chose one topic to tackle, from 5 to 8 April, fans of the engaged theatre will have the pleasure to see the Czech play ‘Marshal Konev’s Last Battle’, the French play ‘Turn Before the Ruins’, a play from Germany ‘Why?’, a play by a group of young people from Greece ‘Unwritten Land’‘The Noise of the Silence’ from Lithuania, ‘Some Like it Fake’ from Slovenia, as well as ‘Testament’ from Serbia. After or during each of the performances there will be an interactive debate with the young audience.

Admission to all festival performances is free.
