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.

From Oct. 6th to Oct. 15th 2013 the dancers of kobalt.works (Belgium) met with the polish director Agnieszka Blonska. Together they followed up questions to taboos inside the german society. Their research included meetings with the cologne funeral director Kuckelkorn, the roman musician Markus Reinhardt, members of the Metropolitan Community Church and a visit of the Pascha – the biggest whore house in europe.

After the Launching-Phase at the End of August the Research-Phase was the next step in the development of TABUROPA. Within this phase the participating directors develop first ideas for the staging of the final performances.
