What do older generations expect from the rising ones? How well have they prepared them for the future? “Can I grow up first and then save the world?” How do generations, which grew up in times of growing distrust and breakdown of existing systems, view the world? How do they navigate the current society, when they were simultaneously taught to believe in radical individualism and universal tolerance? “We’re growing up in an age that has exposed injustice more than any period before. Don’t get me wrong, I think that’s great, but the fact is that the world expects us to be fairer than the generations before us.” What did younger people want for the future thirty years ago and what do they desire now? “I wish I could see you, that I could get some sort of confirmation, 30 years in advance, that you are waiting for me and that a good life awaits ahead. I wish that I had a specific life goal, but it is likely that a view of the future obliterates the meaning of life, which is, in fact, finding a path and following it.”

In the season 2020/2021 we established direct contact with the generations below twenty: twenty creators, born between 2001 and 2006 and three members of the Mladinsko ensemble are exploring the relationships between generations at a time, which is changing extremely rapidly.
