Urban Kids Academy

The digital scavenger hunt »IMPLANTIEREN* jagt Schnitzel (vegan)« is an interface between discourse and Urban Kids Academy program and is open to all age groups.

The interactive parcours invites visitors to take a playful approach to the artistic programme and to explore the festival centres. As an alternative to classical follow-up discussions, the format »IMPLANTIEREN* jagt Schnitzel (vegan)« is intended to provide the opportunity to leave traces and thus enter into a dialogue.

With the help of a smartphone and the app »Actionbound« the scavenger hunt can be carried out individually during the opening hours of the festival centres.


Urban Kids Academy

What is the ‘free theatre scene’ and what does ‘site-specific’ mean? For the first time, the upcoming festival edition of IMPLANTIEREN2020 will focus on a programme for children and young people.

The aim is to give young people the opportunity to experience artistic works by the independent theatre scene and to invite them to become creatively active themselves. The participants of the Urban Kids Academy are also invited to become active in the design of their own work and to use urban space. In this context there will be the possibility to get into a direct exchange with the participating artists. Within the scope of interactive workshops, the specific formats and aesthetics will be discussed in order to try them out for oneself afterwards: The participants become archaeologists, plant rescuers and performers in public space. In a writing workshop the participants can also try finding their own individual way of expressing what they have seen and experienced in writing. The texts will be published here on the website.

The participation is free of charge! If you are interested in our accompanying workshops for children and young people, please register in advance via an e-mail to: ines.wuttke@idfrankfurt.com.


»Recovering Beauty« – Ich sehe was, was du nicht siehst! On an attentive city walk, the participants* will explore the city anew with the performance artist and art figure Ycoen and discover natural beauty in supposedly ugly places. At the same time, the experiences will be incorporated into a spontaneously developed performance.

»moved. BEWEGT. déplacé. (K)ein Spaziergang in Schwarzweiß« The theatre collective around Hannah Schassner and Mirrianne Mahn invites you to a performative walk through the city. They examine everyday movements in public space – how can and should one move and how not? In the workshop, topics such as demarcation, bordering, proximity and distance are taken up and playfully worked on with the help of black and white cube objects.

Digital scavenger hunt: On the trail of art!
On our digital scavenger hunt we are on the trail of art! In the festival centre and other places the art we want to find is hidden. More precisely, art has come up with puzzles that we have to solve together! All you need is a smartphone and the app »Actionbound«, then you can start!

Writing workshop: Become a Blogger!
A good visit to the theatre always includes someone who writes about it. At the Urban Kids Academy we would also like to learn how to write about what you have seen and experienced! What did you find funny, what did you find totally boring? We will do little writing exercises and then write an article. This will then be published here on our festival website.
