Project E

Project E

The project E is a project that wants Europe. An Europe that already exists and which, at the same time, still needs to be built: an Europe that’s more united, so united that it can go beyond the concept of nation, a more open Europe, so open that it can go beyond the concept of the West, and become an Afro-Asian Europe.

The cornerstone of the project is On the Paths of Europe, a performance based on the encounter between Mattia Cason and Muhammad ‘Abd al-Mun’im. Mattia is an European man on the tracks of Alexander the Great – symbol of Europe’s contradictory relationship with the rest of the world, who was always shifting between the desire for conquest and the curiosity towards what differs from you.

The idea is to bring the performance to 27 »marginal« places from Carinthia to Quarnes in an attempt to reveal their great significance not only for the history of Europe, but also, and most importantly, for a contemporary reestablishment of the European project. For more information on the project see its website, You can see more about the project here, and aboutt the places and dates of performances here.
