Letters to Europe
With Salem Zenia, Gonçalo M. Tavares, Azouz Begag, Mahi Binebine, Faraj Bayrakdar, Pierre Mertens …
Writers from the four corners of the world address Europe in a letter. They talk about Fort Europa, the land of milk and honey, an impossible patchwork, a rich variety, a giant on feet of clay, a utopia.
They ask questions. Is Europe an impossible construction? Where are its borders? Sometimes they are harsh and critical, sometimes hopeful and enthusiastic. But they always display tremendous curiosity about the future of the old continent.
Europe appears to exist by the principle of the delicate balance. In this programme, musicians and circus performers cleverly play along with this notion.
