Project Occident

18 young people, born in the year 2000, question the state of Europe, their heritage

Boris en Europese vrienden


Europese première


The European Union was created as an answer to war: a promise, a safe place. Here we live and here we celebrate life, most of us (there are always exceptions). We are eighteen (or almost), we are strong, invincible and independent (most of the time). We are ready to accept our inheritance; to act on it, to think and feel free about it. We, the new generation, together we organise a big party and ask ourselves:

Is everyone welcome?

How much does it cost and who will pay for it?

Who gives the speech and is it allowed to say everything?

Are we going to sing? And what?

Who decides when it is enough?

Where do we sleep?

Who will get screwed?

And what are we celebrating?


You are invited!
