“Bienvenue. Kalosórisma. Welcome. We are so happy to see you all here. Some of you we know rather well, some of you we don’t.”
Two performers – one Greek, one French – dance and shout, cry and sing, agree and disagree, about life in the Eurohouse. A darkly comic look at the EU’s founding ideals and what got lost along the way.
Made in transit between Greece and the UK, Eurohouse was nominated for a Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation & Playing with Form at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
“An engaging, entertaining and highly interactive piece of theatre that presents a very complex issue in an accessible way.” – Quiet Man Dave
“Eurohouse brings together performers from France and Greece who met in Scotland… This performance is a bittersweet warning for us all in the aftermath of Brexit. We all need support and friendship but at what cost?” – Live Art Alive
“The raw, real feeling of the piece completely strips back theatrical illusion – leaving only the two men on stage.” – Mancunion
★★★★ “This wonderfully playful, intimate and ultimately moving show… Constantly pits idealism against self-interest and pragmatism.” – The Guardian
“A powerful, important and subtle piece of theatre which might well make you rethink the EU – and, even if it doesn’t, it will definitely make you laugh.” – Exeunt
