NO FEAR is a new visual and intense performance about chasing your dreams. Eleven young performers, with roots in six different countries, are building their future. In a dynamic interplay of text, dance, music and images, a new world is created from scratch by various young theatre makers with a migration or refugee background. This is the journey of a group youngsters who put their perseverance to the test and hold on to their dreams despite everything. The road is long, but the baggage they take with them from their childhood gives them the strength to overcome difficulties. By showing personal motivations, life energy and a versatile playing style, the audience is part of this impressive journey.
NO FEAR is the conclusive performance of the international project FATE (Future Academy on Tour in Europe), supported by EU/Creative Europe. ZID Theater supervises 25 talented young makers with a refugee history for two years.
The performance is produced by ZID Theater (Amsterdam) and is part of the ExploreZ Festival 2022. The opening night is on Wednesday 11 May 2022 at Podium Mozaïek.
There will also be a double performance on 15 May in OBA Oosterdok together with Spanish colleagues from TNT/Atalaya.
