rotterdam - A memorial to give young people a new meaning to remember war victims of all ages, in a form that matches younger generations. That is the idea behind the first National Youth Memorial, Thursday evening at the new Luxor Theater in Rotterdam.
A youth editorial team has compiled the special commemorative program. With, among other things, The Smartphone Orchestra, which, with an interactive composition, replaces the traditional Taptoo trumpet signal, becomes a 'ghost' of artist Akwasi, various vlogs, pop-up poetry and the performance The course of things. In that, forty young people connect with the current situation in the world.
In front of the Lauren church, 10,000 candles are lit, on an area of 200 square meters. The work of art must symbolize hope for the future.
The memorial is an initiative of Rotterdam Hofpleintheater and the Luxor Theater.
