We are not in the theater. We are at a music festival by the name of UTOPIA. There, young people discuss how they want to shape their future in a society in which all battles are fought out and individual freedom is guaranteed. UTOPIA – the name carries the promise of freedom to exchange views about democratic and fair coexistence. Yet when must words be followed by deeds? What can we do? How can we do it? Wenn die Wolken so sind wie heute (When the Clouds Are Like Today) by young writer Judith Martin is a piece about the desire for resistance and change and the difficulty of overcoming internal and external barriers.
