The Money Game jr.
The Money Game jr. is an investigation into our derailed financial system made with and by a generation growing up in the middle of it.
Everything has a value. Money is power. In 2023, influence has a price and the bosses of Insta, Apple and Amazon run the world. Money makes the world go round, but only for the very rich. What should the rest do with a financial system where there seems to be no way out? And is there a cost for screwing up the world?

The Money Game jr.
Every season, ITA makes a performance with and for young people (15 – 21 years). As a starting point we choose a theme from one of our performances or a theme that is alive among young people from the city. This theme is the starting point of an investigation. The joint research of the young people and the professional theatre makers who supervise them results in a performance that is played before an audience. This year, The Money Game Jr. is being created with Lehman Trilogy by our ITA ensemble, directed by Ivo van Hove, as a source of inspiration.
-|-The fair is back in town. After school or work, groups of youngsters stroll past the stalls and attractions in search of a bit of relaxation and entertainment. While two of them wait for the coin-operated machine to free up, they decide to take a bet on the outcome of the game being played right now. Others follow their lead. The stakes get higher and higher. The bets increasingly complex. Does anyone still have an oversight? It seems just a game but what if you lose?
