The "SOUNDS OF RESISTANCE" project is funded by the Stiftung Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft (EVZ) and the Bundesministerium der Finanzen (BMF) as part of the "Bildungsagenda NS-Unrecht" project.
Packs, mobs, Fahrtenstenze, bubbles, Navajos, Ruhr and Edelweiss pirates: Everywhere in Nazi Germany, groups formed that did not identify with the state-prescribed youth culture. Their style of dress, music and leisure activities brought them together. Their appearance, but also their political actions, brought them into conflict with Nazi ideology and into the crosshairs of the Gestapo. In the 24/25 season, the Theater der Jungen Welt Leipzig and the Junge Oper am Rhein are devoting themselves to this youthful resistance in a music theater project based on the culture of remembrance. Under the artistic direction of director and musician Schorsch Kamerun, young people in Leipzig and Duisburg are exploring the history of these youth groups and the role of youth culture then and now: when does non-conformity become opposition, when does opposition become resistance?
