Europeana, an international co-production awarded the Ibsen scholarship by the Norwegian Ibsen Awards, conceived and directed by Rafika Chawishe and with music by Stavros Gasparatos, will be given its premiere at the GNO Alternative Stage. It is a performance revealing the beauty and tenderness of adolescence with the participation of 60 youth from various communities and countries. 

At a kindergarten in the centre of a typical Western city, adults and teenagers from various communities meet with a super-hero. Out of this surrealistic meeting the outline of a dark paradise is created, in which teenagers are free to map a new age.
Linked to Henrik Ibsen’s play Little Eyolf, Europeana describes young people’s expectations to explore an “unmapped Eden”. An original work dedicated to the young generation.
