THE NEW RAMBO GENERATION

I love the fucking war. And the war loves fucking me.

I love the fucking war. And the war loves fucking me.

Glistening torso, red headband, that defying look in his eyes: Rambo symbolizes the ultimate war hero. With a blade drawn and a machinegun at the ready, he fights injustice.

Inspired by the Rambo-films, YoungGangsters brings you the war-glorifying performance The New Rambo Generation. It’s a location performance, depicting brave young soldiers that turn into savage fighting-machines. It’s an alluring and heroic tale that beats the harsh reality. The play turns the Vietnam War into an action-film, combining intelligent crudeness with skilfully displayed theatrical violence.

The New Rambo Generation was performed at the festivals Oerol, Over het IJ, Simmerdeis, Lowlands and at Jeugdtheater De Krakeling, Stadsschouwburg Utrecht and Rotterdamse Schouwburg (among others).
