Beeindruckende Darbietung des Jugendforums
Bad Hersfeld. „Dobar dan“, „Shalom“, „Welcome“, „Guten Tag“, „Hyvää Päivää“ – gleich zu Beginn der Matinee des Internationalen
Jugendforums wurden die Besucher mit babylonischem Sprachgewirr begrüßt. Kein Wunder, bei einer Darbietung von Jugendlichen aus
fünf verschiedenen Nationen. Eine Woche lang hatten sich die 40 Jugendlichen im Rahmen des 1. Internationalen Jugendforums der Bad
Hersfelder Festspiele Gedanken zur Zukunft Europas gemacht, die sie am Sonntagvormittag einem beeindruckten Publikum präsentierten.
Zunächst einmal wurden aber die verschiedenen Klischees der einzelnen Länder parodiert. So wird Kroatien offenbar nur von Greisen
bewohnt, die gerne in der Sonne herumsitzen, während die Engländer stets fröhlich Tee trinken, obwohl es dauernd regnet. Behäbig
bratwurst-gesättigt präsentierten sich die Deutschen, energiegeladen und zynisch die Israelis, nordisch-depressiv die Finnen.
Zentrales Thema der Präsentation war „Kommunikation“. In humorvollen Szenen zeigten die Jugendlichen, wie sich Europa mit Handy und
Internet immer mehr vernetzt, während Sprachbarrieren wie auch die Mentalitätsunterschiede sicher weiter bestehen werden. Dass die
Jugendlichen der Internet-Generation keine Verständigungsprobleme kannten, zeigte sich hingegen schnell. Und schließlich kam auch die
Musik als universelles Kommunikationsmittel zum Tragen: Durch Trommeln auf Rohre und Metallpfeiler brachten die Jugendlichen die
Schilde-Halle lautstark zum Klingen. Gekonnt wurden anschließend die Zukunftswünsche und -sorgen dargeboten, von „Love & Peace“ bis
zu „Im Jahr 2012 werden wir alle sterben“ reichte die Bandbreite. Und einer brachte schließlich auch seine Hoffnung zum Ausdruck, dass
Deutschland Fußball-Weltmeister wird – da steht der Völkerverständigung wohl nichts mehr im Wege. (jpl)
