Can we reclaim power?

POWER is an endearing monologue of an 18-year-old girl about climate change, power, and the limits of hope. 

‘Maybe we should have gone ahead with it back then. It wasn’t enough to just gather with a large number of people holding up signs, to stand there being all mediagenic, hoping for change to come. No. We should have asked everyone present to either deflate the tyres of   one of those ridiculously large cars, or to seal the doors to a fast fashion chain with glue, or to sabotage one of the cold storage units of one of the major supermarkets. Just imagine what we might have achieved then.’

In POWER, that was created by the dedicated director Joeri Heegstra, we get to see the near future. A disillusioned climate activist checks the state of affairs and concludes that the world is still on a collision course with the climate. Protests are now familiar and harmless events. Too little is being done, and what is being done takes too much time. 

In this theatrical monologue we see how an eighteen-year-old girl will change all that. She’ll be doing what previously was considered unthinkable, but what is now inevitable: she’s going to reclaim power. At all costs.

Jonge Harten offers a diverse program. But where do you start choosing? To clarify things somewhat, we have three main storylines that we are focusing on this year. You can see these lines throughout our program. So that you can easily choose which line suits you best and what you feel like doing at the moment. What are you going for?


No matter what: the future lies ahead of us. And we can influence what our future will be like. What is it you hope for the future? How do you contribute to this? And how do you relate to the future? Will we continue in the way we used to, when we leave the pandemic behind us, or will we radically change our behaviour?

Laat je stem horen!


It’s important that our imagination makes it to the stage, especially now. It’s time to start thinking about how we want to continue after the pandemic, what we want to change and how we want to recover. How are we actually doing? And how are you doing? What is it we want to tell the world? And what does the world want to tell us? Which topics should be on the agenda?


Raise Your Voice

What you have to say is important. The world needs your voice. Raise your voice, just like the makers and performers do in these performances.

Role model

Who are you a role model for? And how do you want to communicate that? Who are your role models? Which voices do you think should be heard more? Let our (theatre) makers guide you to find your voice and let it be heard. Let them be a role model for you during our festival and be inspired.


Performances for and by young people on stage.

Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar info@jongeharten.nl en vraag om nadere toelichting. Vermeld de titel van de voorstelling en waar je graag meer duidelijkheid over wilt hebben (is dit iets om met mijn vriend/vriendin naartoe te gaan? het is misschien wel grappig maar toch niet vulgair? dat soort vragen). De programmeurs van het festival geven je dan persoonlijk het verlossende antwoord!
