Compilation film DEGASTEN 2012-2016
Who are we?
Although we’re officially DEGASTEN since 2013, we have been working since 2003 under the name of Jong RAST.
DEGASTEN is a non-profit organization which develops the talents of youngsters in the theatre field. Every year, DEGASTEN is selecting 70 youngsters in the age of 12 to 25 years, who have weekly trainings and with whom DEGASTEN creates several performances. DEGASTEN specifically works with a diverse group of youngsters; from all cultures, with different talents and therefore with different stories to tell.
Our main goals:
- To introduce youngsters to theatre and to guide them to art schools, follow-up courses and the (semi) professional field of work.
- Creating interdisciplinary performances from and for youngsters.
- Creating good educational shows, workshops and courses for schools.
