Members of Theater DEGASTEN chat about adolescence and architecture, bedrooms, beauty and social media with the people who helped them create a new online Zine for MINDSCAPES. Whilst creating their new projects, our MINDSCAPES commissioned artists worked with individuals and communities from across Manchester who have deep personal or professional knowledge of the relationship between mental health and the places they live. DEGASTEN worked with young people and care institutions across Manchester and in the Netherlands.
Theater DEGASTEN are an Amsterdam-based youth theatre group, creating raw, physical montage theatre with youngsters aged between 12-25 years. The shows are based on the experience of the young actors and expose topical issues. DEGASTEN explore the voices of young people in theatre. They are not afraid of confrontation. Diversity runs in the company’s veins, influencing the style of the work, the composition of the staff team, the youngsters they work with and the audience. The stories they present and the way they work are diverse because DEGASTEN believe that everyone has the right to connect with art and culture, as a participant or as an audience member.
