Belgium: Youth theaters complain about 'Muslim prudishness'
Islam in Europe
Jo Roets, artistic head of the Laika threater group, told newspaper De Morgen that prudishness among immigrant youth will be a hot item in the coming years. Immigrant teenagers shut their eyes or avert their heads when it comes to naked scenes.
Theater maker Jan Decorte says that a woman leading a group of children asked before a show whether there would be any nudity "because our Muslim youth may not see naked people." Decorte says it's a form of censorship.
Brussels youth theater Bronks says they've also seen a turn towards prudishness. The theater wants youth to realize that naked scenes are part of storytelling and there's no need to turn one's head away.
