This presentation of Dare Night was part of Teentalitarianism a social-specific multi-faceted performance, using Atelier Van Leishout's massive installation The Good, Bad and the Ugly as location, where adult audiences were invited to enter a very different world: a world where the tables are turned and they were subject to the authority of young people. Created in collaboration with the Young Mammals (Toronto) and local German youth, Teentalitarianism explored the idea of a teentalitarian state, a time and a place where teenagers have absolute rule.
