Designed to run for 18 months, TABUROPA is an international research and theatre project on the topic of taboos that will be conducted in four selected countries: Portugal, Poland, Belgium and Germany. Based on their respective historical and cultural traditions, these four countries each stand for a different set of experiences in dealing with taboos and thus exemplify the diversity of Europe.

“If we consider taboos as an unkown territory…

“If we consider taboos as an unkown territory, than the artists (directors and actors) are travellers through this wilderness. Their diaries (written, video, sounds and finally their performances ) will give us an impression of what they have seen and of what they have experienced in a land ungettable for us. But we can read and through reading we will be enabled to prepare our own expedition to the unknown territory of temporary
taboos.” Application EACEA – Taburopa (Gregor Leschig)
