The creation process will be a complex of three laboratory periods - one in each country, that do research about the projects title theme and question, what happened in the past of the countries and this continent? How can one stay in contact with the earth, the traditions and natural forms of living while facing the rapid changes in our lives' realities?

The artistic approach bases on physical theatre, Interpretive, Butoh and Contact improvisation dance, Stilts, acrobatics, Live music, voices & more.

We aim to create a large scale outdoor show that starts a confrontation with merging and mutation of different European cultures. The three presentations of the work (though one work-in-progress show in June 2008) will be set in and around the three rivers of the festivals cities.
