I guess I've always liked doing drama, so when I moved to Dortmund I stumbled across this project. The aspect of acting with different personalities from different cultures really interested me as well as drama. Especially as we try to find out within the project how we want our future to be.
What kind of Europe would you like to live in?
I would like to live in an Europe, where everyone has the possibility to speak their minds and opinions freely. I would also like to live in an Europe where we give more to those in need and where we act more generous towards others.

The topic we're working on is reason.
KJT Dortmund is a theatre for youth and children. Founded in 1953, it is an autonomous part of the Theatre Dortmund, which is the municipal theatre of the city of Dortmund.
Why are you taking part in europefiction? Participation in the project: It was a chance to practice oral German and English. It was also a good opportunity to do theater, which we wanted. We were interested in being able to participate in a collective creation. Joël, who has already participated in a previous project between Transplanisphere and KJT Dortmund, wanted to repeat the experience.
What kind of Europe would you like to live in? Europe in which to live: Without lobby, without corruption, without Salvini, without Viktor Orban and without Brexit!

Perhaps more media coverage of what the European Union really is so that we can better understand each other, that the subject becomes more accessible, that the legislative and executive procedures are simplified.
Which topic are you working on? Why is this an important concern to Europe? What are you working on and why is it important: Our subject is the reason and we have developed it on war, conflict, feelings, the decision as to whether there is a single reason. This work prompts us to think and distinguish between reason and feelings. The goal is to overcome individualities to move forward. That's the whole problem of Europe today. And we are led to ask ourselves if we want this European ideal, and above all, if it is possible?
