Show resume

"Put Europe on the stage, how do you want to interest the spectators with such a subject? Says one of the actresses. This is the challenge set by the company Tire and Sidon by putting up this play.

France, Pierre, Italo, Maria, Peter and Pedro are six actors from different European countries, hired to play "Six characters in search of Europe".

Their role ? That of European citizens who want Europe to finally play its role on the international scene, to meet the great challenges of this century: climate change, threats to our freedoms and our democracies, inequalities.

France pro-European, meets his childhood love Pierre, who has become a recognized nationalist leader, and finds that he has changed. Will they again love each other and share a piece of road together?

Dialogues that fuse. Humor. Songs. Depth and Lightness.

Will our players succeed in proposing an Europe that is more democratic, more cohesive, and more effective, and which responds to our time?

But are our characters really citizens willing to play a role in the city or simple
actors who are there to move us?
