THE AYTF MOVEMENT OFFERS YOUTH A COMMUNAL PLATFORM FOR DIALOGUE, A SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL NETWORK OF SUPPORT AND A THINK TANK OF IDEAS AND ASPIRATIONS FOR FUTURE GROWTH AND EMPOWERMENT.
ASIAN YOUTH THEATRE FESTIVAL
“My favourite thing about the festival is watching how each team, from different backgrounds and cultures, interpret the theme of the festival and produce a piece that is both unique to their community and relatable to those watching. I especially love how supportive all the teams are of each other. With theatre as a platform, it’s inspiring and heartwarming to see how empathetic everyone is towards each other. This festival shows me that despite borders and cultural differences, we are all one Asian community.”
“AYTF is a huge platform for every theatre enthusiast to learn more about theatre in the different aspects that include exchanging cultures and languages. It was a great opportunity to see how different countries have different ways or styles to tell stories and send messages through theatre. AYTF also makes one be more open-minded, how everything is not about competition but rather about learning and enjoying life with the people who have the same interest as you. This is where all theatre enthusiasts get united!”
