Extended Universe is a two-year project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union that will develop young independent theatre audiences across Europe. Four artists (one per country) will co-create new work with 15-25 year olds that will be presented in Copenhagen, Barcelona, Athens and digitally (created in London). Boundless Theatre will lead the project with partners; Teater Grob (Copenhagen), Entropia (Athens) and Sala Beckett (Barcelona). By putting a teenage and young adult audience first, and maximizing digital developments for storytelling, we will produce a high quality narrative exploring ideas around Power, Utopia and Youth Culture that gives voice to a young European audience.
This is an extraordinary and exciting time to be working with three such inspiring and innovative companies across Europe. When developing Extended Universe, we all wanted to honour the conversations we’ve had with teenagers and young people and better understand a changing Europe through the eyes of a generation who will live longest through the legacy of recent upheavals in the UK, Greece, Spain and Denmark.
