An exchange between performing artists and video installation artists in Ermoupolis, regarding Europe NOW, as “we ask ourselves in hope, in fear and trembling, what this face is going to resemble.” (Derrida).
An exploration of identity, the other, borders, culture and freedom.
Please bear in mind that Ermoupoli, the capital of Cyclades where the festival will be held, is a town founded by refugees in the 19th century. Ships arrived safe and sound at Syros whereas others cracked in storms and were wrecked at the Aegean sea. But still, sea and even more so “the Mediterranean evokes navigation, exchange, this –something- that carried merchandise and gods… ideas and methods” [Derrida].
In the near future, in our diverse European societies, will different generations, age group communities and people with different habits, religions, and languages still be living together?
We hope that the “Europass” project will take you on a journey through time and across borders.
