The performance TIME-OUT! is a musically interactive theater concept that is always tailor-made for the audience. In addition to the performance, the Time Out Event also includes the Time Out Café. Due to corona, some cafés were rolled out online and the effects of the pandemic were discussed. The interactive theater events organized by the Time Out Foundation (2018-2021) are also a study into the mental well-being of students. With this research, we bring stress and burnout from the perspective of young people.
TIME OUT sees indications that students are stuck in a system in which they experience little flexibility. This system demands high performance and leaves little room for learning through failure. The social loan system, the BSA and performance standards in social and community environments are important components of this system. The conversations show that students feel misunderstood or ashamed when they fail in relation to the performance society.
