What is Europe? The cradle of modern civilisation? A political idea created for economic expansion? A hopeful, humanist idea for peace? Or a geographical landmass with no shared future?

Three brand new productions investigating the past, present and future of Europe, co-curated by Maria Åberg and Judith Gerstenberg and created by some of the leading theatre artists working on the continent right now. 

What is Europe - the cradle of modern civilisation? A political idea created for economic expansion? Or a geographical landmass with no shared future?

At the heart of the European idea was a hopeful, humanist vision - but can that vision still be salvaged? And do we even want it to be?

 Projekt Europa is an experiment in curiosity, a provocative look at how we live together in the context of our shared history, and a joyous celebration of the very best of European theatre making
