For europefiction, five theatres from different European countries enter into five bilateral collaborations with five theatres from the german ruhr area. Together they work on performances concerning the question “What kind of Europe would you like to live in – and what are you willing to do for it?”. For one year, the participants meet in digital space, during a bilateral exchange and during a nine-day-long summer camp in Gelsenkirchen (Germany). Europefiction and its groups wishes to develop visions, stands in for solidarity and strives to question existing models and to view democracy and social justice as something that is yet to be achieved.
