Lucas De Man travelled to 17 cities in 8 countries, interviewing more than 20 creative people trying to shape their societies. He discovered an awakening generation, ready to fight for change. Who are these visionaries? How do they perceive our era and society? How do they see the challenges facing Europe? How do they imagine change? More importantly, what do they do about it? Will there be another generation like Erasmus, Thomas More and Luther who laid the foundations of today’s Europe?
Post-show discussion with Prof. Hilary Pilkington of University of Manchester will follow the performance reflecting on the role of young people and populist politics in the future of Europe.
