Directors in TYA 2025

Every two years, ASSITEJ Germany organises the International Directors’ Seminar for Children’s and Youth Theatre, which has been known as “DIRECTORS IN TYA – An International Exchange” since 2018.

The next edition of DIRECTORS IN TYA will take place from the 22nd to the 29th June 2025, at the FUNDUS THEATER | Forschungstheater in Hamburg.

Topic: Reassembling the world: Intergenerational and international alliances in TYA

How can artistic practices connect audiences from around the world? What message would the children from your local community send to a group of adult artists? How can our audiences share our connections and benefit from them? How can intergenerational and international alliances inspire our TYA practice? How can TYA reassemble the world – one project at a time?

Please find more detailed information in the document below and the application form at the end of the page.
