European Citizen Popsong
Summerhall Festival - Red Lecture Theatre
Music’s power has erased boundaries before, but can it make us feel connected as citizens, even after the Brexit? Last year, theatre maker Marieke Dermul researched if such a thing as a European identity or a common European sense exists. With this question in mind, she started a journey through Europe. By collecting opinions and musical input by citizens from all over Europe; lyrics became a collection of fears and doubts, music as a symbol of hope and the popsong for unity arose. This is that story.
