1. Hausbesuch Europa (Home Visit Europe) is a performance you can put in your hand luggage - big ideas are rarely presented so intimately. What is Europe actually? Is it a geographic border, a cultural identity, a coalition of states? It is said over and over that Europe is an ever changing idea - too theoretical, as the individual can tell from their own experience. Rimini Protokoll contrasts this abstract idea of Europe with the individuality of a private apartment. 15 people become part of a performance in a living room that interweaves personal stories and the political mechanisms of Europe. How much Europe is in us all?

    You can host Home Visit Europe in your own home or be a guest in a stranger's private apartment. Each performance takes place in different homes and so the performance will travel through hundreds of apartments throughout Europe, building a network that rather than growing from a centre, stretches from front door to front door across a continent.

    Voting results and group pictures from all of the home visits will be anonymously collected at homevisiteurope.org. The results can them be compared online as part of an ever growing European archive.
