Europe : visite à domicile

Rimini Protokoll (DE,CH)

Swiss premiere
10th - 20th
2016

duration : about 120'. + transportation

Instigators of an approach that seeks to show reality in all its aspects, the Rimini Protokoll collective has redoubled its creative efforts to unravel its complexity. Contained in a suitcase, Europe : visite à domicile takes place in a private home and addresses major issues. How do we define Europe? Is it a geographical border, a cultural identity, a coalition of states? To what extent is it a part of each of us? Rimini Protokoll contrasts the abstract idea of a confederation within the intimacy of a private apartment. Fifteen people become part of a performance in a living room that interweaves personal stories and the mechanisms of politics.
