Nachricht vom Verlust der Welt / News of the Loss of the World


“Der junge Salon” is an institution, which exposes youth from 14 to 20 years old to art and culture offering continuous and sustainable projects for young people. For the season 2012/2013, work on two theatre pieces “Nachricht vom Verlust der Welt” in cooperation with Brick-5 and Herklotzgasse has been planned.

Twenty young people will prepare two theatre plays based on the novel “Nachricht vom Verlust der Welt” by Inge Rowhani-Ennemoser, which deals with the destiny of a Jewish family during the era of Nationalsocialism. Through cooperation on this project, these young people with different migration backgrounds and family roots will deal with topics such as anti-semitism, hidden forms of xenophobia and exclusion of minorities in everyday life.

Through medium of theatre, the project aims to create a room for cultural exchange and dialogue, above all for youth from the 15th district with family roots from different countries: Albania, Croatia, Serbia, and Czech Republic. It provides a platform, where they have possibility to cooperate on an overriding theme which affects them all.

Premiere: 13. April 2013 at 7:30 pm

Location: Salon5 at Brick-5, Fünfhausgasse 5, 1150 Vienna
