TABUROPA is an international theatre project on the topic of taboos that will be conducted in four countries: Portugal, Poland, Belgium and Germany.
Designed to run for 18 months, TABUROPA is an international research and theatre project on the topic of taboos that will be conducted in four selected countries: Portugal, Poland, Belgium and Germany. In workshops, public rehearsals, performances and lectures, internationally experienced theatre producers, choreographers, actors and dancers will explore the cultural, historical and everyday significance of taboos in their countries. How the topic is tackled artistically will be based on research carried out by artists in the participating countries. Country-specific experiences with taboos will be jointly analysed by artists working together across borders and discussed with the public in performances. Through these activities TABUROPA will foster comprehension of a real-life European ‘canon of values’, of the foundation for patterns of social action that could promote the emergence of a European public.
