What does 'Europe' mean? The stage: a table. On it a suitcase containing the secret of Europe. This is how the renowned ensemble Rimini Protokoll opens its new theatrical project in a series of European cities. They take the abstract and unstable concept of Europe into the intimate sphere of the private home. How do people talk about Europe in Lisbon, Berlin, Poznan or Bergen? performances of Home Visit: Europe will be collated in a European archive and be involved in establishing a network of the same name. Europe is constantly being reshaped and redefined. At the same time the EU makes political decisions with serious consequences for coming generations. Home Visit: Europe plays out in private homes. Each time an audience of 15 is invited to participate in a game about the future of Europe and the processes involved. Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi, Daniel Wetzel concept & direction Katja Hagedorn dramaturg Juliane Männel production manager Ragnhild Gjefsen croupier Ideas that would never reach Brussels are debated. In Bergen the game will be led by a Norwegianspeaking croupier, but some of the performances will be in English (see language, left). Rimini Protokoll is at the forefront of documentary theatre, in which the script is taken from real life, and in which 'everyday experts' – ordinary people – take part.

 As artistic director for Carte Blanche, Hooman Sharifi wishes to focus on gender. His first programme for the company is dedicated to feminism. Together with the dancers of Carte Blanche, five choreographers, all of them women, create three performances in a programme for the 2015 Bergen International Festival. The five artists Kristin Ryg Helgebostad, Ingeleiv Berstad, Siri Jøntvedt, Snelle Hall and Lina Saneh have been handpicked because they have created strong images of women, bodies and characters in their artistic works. In addition, their nuanced and direct approach to the opposite sex contribute to the importance of their works. Together with Carte Blanche’s dancers, Helgebostad & Berstad will explore a meeting, a unity, a song. Vanity and courage are the points of departure for Siri & Snelle’s choreographic production. Thematically, the piece is about failing – a recurring topic for the two – and everything we as people do to succeed. Lina Saneh interrogates the nature and function of acts and speech in the era of the virtual and of the idealized body as portrayed by the media.
