by David Greig –– Directed by: Alexandru Mihăescu

The performance takes place in a railway station in a small border town in Europe. With the last train stopping before the station closes because it has become unusable, Morocco, a small-time luxury goods dealer, arrives in town, along with two refugees - Sava and Katia - in search of shelter and safety. Adele, a local station worker, fascinated by the freedom of refugees, wishes she could explore the world like them. A love story takes shape, and the dramatic text builds on the tragedy of horizonlessness and unfulfilled desires, as well as revealing stereotypes of the refugee image. David Greig deals with the complex theme of fluid borders and shifting identities, giving a particularly compelling dramatic quality to the powerful symbol of the empty station and the trains speeding through it. Europe depicts people constantly on the move, physically and emotionally, some of them painfully anchored in the certainties of the past, others striving to set off for new destinations. Europa is a production that deals with universal themes and at the same time is permeated with intimate overtones.
