The project will be an opportunity for participants to put their emotions into motion with original choreographies, to give rhythm to their messages with their own compositions and to draw their desires with digital spray paint cans. Accompanied by David Galassi and Sylvia Camarda as artistic directors, Luka Tonnar, Thomas MacLloyd and Claudia Urhausen will help the young people with the creative process and guide them through the various techniques of dance, rap, beatmaking and graffiti.

The project will end with a performance at the Philharmonie Luxembourg's Espace Découverte on 21 November at 7pm.

"Ech hat gester de Privilege e vun Äre ennerstëtzte Kulturprojëe „Wesch Side Story“ fum Escher Jugendhaus ze erliewen an der Philharmonie. Et ass fir mech wichteg Unerkennng fir dëse bemierkenswäerte Projëe auszedrecken. D’Performance, déi vu professionelle Kënschter:  d’Syvia, David, Thomas, Luca an Claudia, vu Jugendlecher vum Escher Jugendhaus begleet hunn, war fir mech een inklusiv, kreativ an inspiréierend Erliefnes. 

Et war kloer ze bemierken wéi déi Jonk net nëmmen duerch Är an den Kënstler hir Ennerstetzung, resilient an individuell gestäerkt hunn mee och  d’Dynamik op der Bühn war faszinéierend an hued de Publikum an eng Welt geholl, déi duerch Athentizitéit geprägt huet. Et war beandrockend ze gesinn, wéi déi Jonk hir Perséinlechkeet duerch Theater, Musek an Danz konnten entwéckelen. Esou Projëe si wäertvoll fir d’Entwécklung vu jonke Leit an hëllefen eng inklusiv Kultrur ze förderen, déi Platz fir Selbstentwécklung schaaft. 

Ech sinn dankbar fir dëst inspiréierend an nostalgech Event gesin ze hunn. An der Vergangenheet hunn ech un ähnlechen Projëe deelgehol mam Sylvia, David an Claudia a kann aus menger Erfahrung sohen wéi empowerend a resilient esou Erfahrunge kënne sinn."
