Manchester International Festival - Re:Creating Europe

Ivo Van Hove by Jan Versweyveld

Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


What is Europe? Is it a continent or a culture, a bygone dream or a thriving reality – or all of the above?

In a year when a deeply divided Britain is set to leave the EU, Re:Creating Europe explores the continent through the speeches and texts that have shaped, traced and defined its history. Created by De Balie and ITA, directed by Ivo van Hove and performed by the ITA ensemble alongside some very special guest performers, Re:Creating Europe uses the words of artists, thinkers and political leaders – from Shakespeare to Goethe, Churchill to Obama – to evoke the very notion of Europe, forcing us to reflect on what it is, what it was and what it could become.

Produced by Manchester International Festival, De Balie and Internationaal Theater Amsterdam.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext and BSL.
