spleen 2014

From 6th to 12th February 2014, Mezzanin Theater(Graz, AT) and
TaO! – Theater am Ortweinplatz/(Graz, AT) will organise spleen*graz -
International theatre festival for a young audience for the fifth time.

Children’s Theatre
Our diverse children’s theatre programme features performances that meet
the particular demands of a young audience. It covers a broad spectrum
of different theatrical forms, including plays, dance and music shows
and improvised performances.


Youth Theatre
Teenagers do not go to the theatre on a regular basis – they have to be
conquered. This is why our youth programme features high-quality plays,
in which artists try to explore new and unconventional paths and take
the courage to address difficult topics.

As part of the festival, young artists will get the chance to develop
their own ideas and projects, including performances at public places,
theatrical tours, reality theatre shows and installations. Many of the
young people involved in /spleen*trieb/ will be on “stage” for the first
