“Schulbesuch Europa” 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 everchanging idea – too theoretical, as the individual can tell from their own experience. Rimini Protokoll contrasts this abstract idea of Europe with the reality of a class room. 15 students become part of a performance in a class room that interweaves personal stories and the political mechanisms of Europe. How much Europe is in a class room? 

To mark this year's election for the European Parliament, we are bringing this interactive performance format by the renowned theater collective Rimini Protokoll into classrooms in Mai and June. 

On the election day itself, Sunday, June 9th, we are offering a version of “Schulbesuch Europa” for all age groups. 


“Not even for a minute was this interactive learning boring, on the contrary, you discuss and arm wrestle as part of the game. Just like the pressure, which increases from level to level and stimulates competitive thinking. At the end, there's cake for everyone and the one that has done best doesn't get the biggest piece.”
