Invited are the international network TOgether and their play Hotel Europa.

Hotel Europa, after a long tour in many European cities, will be presented for the first time in Greece (free entry) at Theatro Rematias (16/06/15) and Theatro EMPROS (17/06/15). At the same time, the members of the network Together will offer a workshop on the Theatre of the Oppressed (19-20/06/15) at the Halandri Municipality Youth Centre, as well as they will contribute towards a Round Table / Open Discussion at the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation (18/06/15) on the topic “City, Active Citizenship and the Theatre of the Oppressed”. In addition to the above, the TO Activist Group Greece, will present it’s most recent Theatre Forum play “However…” (free entry) at the Halandri Municipality Youth Centre (20/06/15). As the last one of these series of events, there will be an Open Discussion on the Theatre of the Oppressed (21/06/15) at the Department of Theatre Studies – University of Peloponnese in Nafplio (free entry).

The network TOgether is made up by university departments, national theatres, festivals, theatrical organizations and distinguished animators social theatre from Germany (Kuringa), Italy (University of Bologna & Krila TDO), Portugal (GTO LX), Croatia (Istrian National Theatre - City Theatre Pula & Pula - Forum Festival), Spain/Catalonia (Pallapupas), France (Pas a Passo) and Scotland (Active Inquiry). Artistic director and coordinator of the program is the internationally acclaimed Brazilian animator and actor Barbara Santos, which operates in Germany (Kuringa) and Brazil (GTO Rio).

At the heart of the inquiry of this international team of animators, lies the exploration of ideologies and the reasons behind the socio-economic crisis, seeking proposals for the European coexistence. Consistent with the above, is the group’s willingness to contribute -with its yearly experience- towards the efforts of the Greek society to recover. The outlook is a democratic, active and participatory citizenship with theater as a tool.
