“Me, Europe” (Ich, Europa) Call For Participation

For a new theatre production at the Schauspiel Dortmund, in Dortmund, Germany, we are looking for playwrights and authors from North Africa and  the Middle East. The opening of the production called “Me, Europe” (Ich, Europa) is scheduled for mid-October 2018.


“Ich, Europa” (Me, Europe) recounts the 1.400 years filled with stories of  love and hate between Orient and Occident, between Muslims and Christians – in a perspective which is foreign for a Western European audience. 13 male and female writers (from Turkey, Kurdistan, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco) let the persona of Europa speak (which will be embodied by our entire actors’ ensemble).


We are looking for authors who are willing to write a formative historic experience about this relationship in a three to four page monologue.
