Europe's changing, and will continue to change. What's left of the old dream of a united Europe?  Renowned for their confrontational performances, the up-and-coming Estonian directors duo Ene-Liis Semper and Tiit Ojasoo have created a performance without words about the Europe of now.

Their piece is based on a play consisting solely of stage directions, by the Austrian writer Peter Handke. The author gave them permission to add their own scenes, in which they refer to some of Europe's most pressing issues. In a mesmerising series of short, sometimes ultrashort scenes, tens of actors, dancers and a choir portray the continent in all its diversity.
