Street temptations

Street Temptations – This script was based on the true story of a boy sentenced to a youth detention centre for a violent crime. Our starting point, was his quote: ´I would rather have a bloody nose than no friends´. Fighting among young people often arises from peer pressure and it isn´t always a young person’s personal choice. The experience was intended to stimulate dialogue around the subject and is being used in youth organisations. In this experience we played with light and dark, large and small spaces and contrast. Street Temptations was specially developed for garage 2020, an innovative organisation that tries to look at questions around youth support from a new perspective.
