Six teams of European theatre makers will create six twenty-minute microdramas based on Stefan Zweig's speech "Unification of Europe";

The conditions are the same for everyone: One text as a common basis, a maximum of two performers, minimal technical effort. Six theatrical commentaries from different perspectives on the still fragile unification of Europe. What does Stefan Zweig’s dream of European unification as the only defence against war and nationalism still have to say to us today? Visit Europe while it still stands!
