When is the contemporary? What is theatre? What are theatres? Where is
Europe? What is a nation? Who are “we”? We are surrounded by questions
and crises or potential crises. Our systems, political, financial and

The discussion will be held in Greek, English, German and the attendance will be open to the public.
