3 Steps

"Brucklinn - Youth Theatre Building Bridges" is THE theater festival format by and with children and young people.

In the middle of Innsbruck, a colorful, varied and freely accessible program of performances and workshops for the whole family takes place, while at the same time artistic and cultural exchange opportunities bring together young people from all over the world.

In the period from October 2020 to June 2023, a progressively international youth theater scene formed, which annually develops plays on different focal points and these were first brought to the stage in June 2021.

Under the motto #bedifferent, 20 theater groups presented their plays in 2021 - locally in Innsbruck and online for the whole world.

In summer 2022 - national groups will be invited to show their participatory created theater pieces with children and young people in Innsbruck and to give space to the artistic diversity of young people.

In 2023, the network of international theater groups will be our guests in Innsbruck in the grand finale. The live premieres of the most diverse forms of children's and youth theater from all over the world will crown the three stages of Brucklinn - the festival that forms the bridge for young theater.
