The goal of the project “Young Theatre” is to address the trend of low and steadily decreasing popularity of theatre among European audiences, especially the young, by exploiting the audience building potential of improvisational theatre.
Pionirski dom - Centre for Youth Culture was founded by the city of Ljubljana in 1963 as a public institution in the field of culture. Since then, it has become one of the leading institutions for cultural education in Ljubljana. With the varied programme of all year-round cultural, artistic and linguistic activities, it develops and promotes child and youth creativity and also offers activities for adults and whole families.
OCC draws its uniqueness from the fact that all of its shows are exclusively for children from the age of 3 upwards. OCC houses three auditoriums - Great Hall, with a capacity of 424 seats, Mozart Salon, with 130 seats, and UnderGrant Hall, with 120 seats - where not only famous soloists and dancers but also very young talents perform. Nowadays, there are more than 500 events scheduled each season with the main goal of reaching as many children in Bucharest as possible. We believe that it is never too early to expose a child to the great musical works of art and we strive to make it as fun as possible for everyone involved in this process. Every month over 10,000 children see our shows and even more visit us virtually.
