WHAT: Teens take centre-stage this week at the Onassis Youth Festival 2018 gives a voice to our most dynamic generation through a weekend of creative workshops and events.

Imagine Antigone as a teenager quarrelling with her family? Oedipus falling in love with his teacher? Helen of Troy suing for divorce, or Prometheus punished for doing what he thought was right? Do revolution, romance, hate, arguments, war or injustice ever get old?

Here is a festival for our most dynamic age-group, teenagers, that breathes new life into ancient texts by inviting star directors and theatre companies to work with secondary-school children aged 12–18. They will be given the tools to conquer their fear of ancient drama and own the texts. Find their voice in the classics and tell the world how they feel just as loudly as they want!

The Onassis Youth Festival 2018 invites our teens to find, unlock, share and release their potential and emotions onstage.
