The continent that considers itself the inventor of democracy and equality is standing on its last legs. In Fort Europe, Tom Lanoye brings to the fore a tired Europe, tarnished by wars, by the Holocaust and by capitalism. It is within this landscape that five individuals search, with little result, for the remains of a European civilisation. Now, Tom Lanoye’s more-current-than-ever Fort Europe is back on stage, supported by musicians Nicolas Rombauts and Teun Verbruggen.
Following the reading, Tom Lanoye will enter in conversation with thinkers and politicians on the urgent issues on which Fort Europe touches. What European values are worth protecting?
Moderator: Lex Bohlmeijer
