A traveling exhibition made up from objects loaned by 6 theatre museums across Europe, showing the history of the theatre.
It's mostly a series of photos, drawings and paintings mounted on displays, but runs through the history of the theatre from ancient Greek up to modern times.
With more than 250 exhibits, the exhibition illustrates how the history of Europe from antiquity to the present is mirrored in the performances and the theatre buildings of the different eras. Battles or political powerplays are not the focus, but rather the mutual influences across all borders and the development of society – elements that have shaped Europe and continue to shape it.
A colourful design, reminiscent of the colours in the flags of European countries, the exhibition presents nine topical chapters, entitled:
The Mediterranean Experience
Changing Society – Changing Building
Aesthetics and Technology
