The Noise of the Silence / EYE.net 2.0

The play ‘The Noise of the Silence’ will be streamed online as part of the theatre festival created as a result of the EYE.net 2.0 project (European Youth Engagement Network 2.0), on 8 April at 6 p.m. in the Cultural Centre of Novi Sad Theatre Hall. The play will be performed by project participants from Lithuania, 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:

A performance about the noise of silence. A performance that evokes empathy, the ability to meet and understand people who live in silence. We will invite the audience not only to see but also to experience the theatre, searching with the actors for a language that everyone understands and embarking on a search for their own and others’ abilities. We will invite you not only to see solidarity from the outside but to live it, to feel that together we can change ourselves and others. Because in the theatre, life helps in creation and creation helps us to live.

About the festival:

The theatre festival, created within the EYE.net 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 ‘EYE.net’ 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’, ‘Do You Like Tomato Sauce?’ from Italy, ‘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.
