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.

Exploring the historical foundations of the contemporary crisis, the show invites the audience to wonder what a different future for Europe would look like. The show talks about the story of a middle-class family who has been affected by the austerity measures imposed by governments and by the pressure for more profit by the banking sector. Hotel Europa invites the public to activate itself and to intervene in the dramatic plot, so as to explore specific alternatives to the problems presented on stage. The play has been presented in many European cities and for the first time in Greece by the distinguished jokers of the Theatre of the Oppressed, who are members of the international network TOgether.

Are you ready to give up everything, just to keep your job?
