Civilized Countries

Pink Valley

„... What if‘ being civilized‘ doesn‘t mean being highly educated or having good manners?
What if being civilized means recognizing the human in others...“

Civilized Countries is a mixture of theatre, performance and experiment – at the same time it is discourse, ritual and parody. In German, English and Spanish the collective deals with personal stories and moments of social tension and experiments with empathy as a phenomenon that has to be aesthetically activated. It is a reaction to the rightwing populist tendencies in Europe and an attempt to counteract.
