Innovative performance using video, text and song. Idea and direction by Dritëro Kasapi and text by Mia Törnqvist.
Innovative performance using video, text and live music, presented in old cafés, the meeting place of different generations and cultures. Europe’s history after the Second World War until today is seen through the life of Gloria, a traveller and a migrant whose story is mirrored by the voice and songs of her son, played by Istanbul based counter-tenor Nuri Harun Ates.
Europe’s aging population trend, emigration of the young, immigration of the elderly and foreigners, apathy, identity crises, xenophobia and racism are the topics. “How old is Europe and what is its future?” is the question asked by two generations, both immigrants and marginalized.
Four filmed interviews draw Gloria’s path through this life and are projected on three TV screens, accompanied by a live performance, all created by Dritëro Kasapi.
