Summary


This project should give young people the possibility to make new experiences which help them to motivate themselves, and to realize that school is one place where you learn to make new and exciting experiences. We hope to reduce by the way the share of early school leavers because they get more motivation for school being part of this project. We are going to do a project with special focus on integration and assimilation in Europe, considering the history of the European Union and it's members (partners in the project). The pupils who take part in the project should work together on a musical – that is working with history-presence-future, drama, English language and of course music ending in a presentation on stage.

The idea is:
to research the history of EU in a young (fit for pupils) manner and present it as a musical.
The plot may be:
Six friends come together in 1957 with a good idea of working together. This idea is that good that new friends join them and more and more and more friends (countries) join them and they work together in a wider and deeper way. And then they have problems and crises and they struggle and are friends again and at least they get the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012. The last act will be open to the future how the pupils see their future in the EU.

We focus with this musical on the good things EU means to the European people. In the news we always see the European crisis. The musical don't talk about money but about working together and singing the "Song of Joy", which is the manifestation of freedom, peace and solidarity.
By the way we will produce an instruction book including stage direction, technical requirements, proposals for costumes and stage decoration and live performances of students in English and in the mother tongues. Students will also shoot a film of their play. The project website will be created so as to ensure the dissemination of he project.

Most of the work will be done during the meetings so the pupils can experience the work in a multi-cultural team abroad and they can find out whether this could be a part of their work life expectations.

And if we are very lucky we can approach that there will be movies of musical performances in all EU official languages that can be showed in the Parlamentarium as a video installation.
