On 10th December 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, outlining basic rights of any human being regardless of race, religion, economic status or any other variable, defining the human being with regard to the context, into which he or she is born and/or in which he or she lives. The declaration presents one of the foundations of the society after the Second World War, written with an intention to prevent the horrors that caused the havoc in the world in the first half of the 20th century happening ever again. 70 years later, the time has come to see in what way the Declaration is integrated in the modern society and how well young people know it and understand it.
The Right to be a Human will be a theatrical research, involving young people, aged between 13 and 19, who will be exploring in collaboration with the creative team and selected group of experts their own understanding of permissible and acceptable, social and personal responsibility and interpersonal relationships. In the process the participating teenagers will get in touch with other young people from different social contexts and relevant organisations, which will expand and upgrade their intimate understanding of the relationship between the individual and society.

The actors will co-shape with their own reflections and experiences both the theatrical text and the final image of the show. They will be also able to visit at the time of creating of the theatre show, signed by director Mare Bulc and dramaturge Ana Duša, a theatrical laboratory, where they will be training in theatrical skills under the baton of the participating mentors.

In this way the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre continues with its active involvement of young people as in the theatre as well as in the wider cultural and social space, offering adults a possibility of a deeper insight into the way the upcoming generations think, and opening up at their intersection a common space for conversation.
