Theater performance:
Premiere: 03.11.2005 21:00h/ 04.-06.11.2005 21:00h
Theater Gasthuis, Bastiaansestraat 54, Amsterdam

On Saturday there will be a talk with the group andcompany&Co. and
Marijke Hoogenboom from the Hoogeschool vor den Kunsten.

This theater-performance is based on research done at the outer-border of
the European Union between Greece and Turkey: the river Evros (Greek) or
Mehric (Turkish). The river-scenery around the Delta is a bird's paradise
as well as a military zone, which contains one of the largest mine-fields
in the world: killing fields for refugees and migrants that try to enter
the EU here. This is the reason why this year's no-border-camp took place
here, organized by Greek and Bulgarian activists
The area of Thrace, divided into Greek, Turkish and Bulgarian parts, is
at the same time out- and inside of Europe, also historically,
mythologically as well as botanically: Here Orpheus was ripped in pieces
after he returned from the underworld and King Pentheus who tried to
prohibit the cult of Dionysius. In the delta the fauna & flora of Europe
and Asia meet and most of Europe's birds during migration to the other
half of the world. Amsterdam based artists' network andcompany&Co. drove
on land to this border: exit and re-enter EU. When they tried to re-enter
Schengen-Land they were stopped for 18 hours because of a quite
unbelievable pass-port story. Their research and their experiences are 
translated into a performance which will be shown at the theater Gasthuis
Novembre 3rd until 6th and in Germany next year. The language is English.
