The Best European Show

JK Opole Theatre

13 October 2023

October will see the world premiere of the international production of 'The Best European Show', directed by Haris Pašović. Artists from 8 countries will create a show that is a unique example of cooperation between theatrical partners from all over Europe. Teatru Malta, Slovenian National Theatre Nova Gorica, Fondazione Teatro Due Parma, National Theatre of Kosovo and JK Opole Theatre join forces!

Haris Pašović diagnoses the condition of European theatre and looks at its relationship to democracy. As a portrait of a closed community, 'The Best European Show' highlights the most important challenges facing contemporary theatre, showing systemic pathologies and proposing a dialogue about contemporary Europe and the relationship between art and power.

The show's cast includes actors and actresses from Italy, Kosovo, Malta, Slovenia, Germany, France and Poland. The Opole premiere of 'The Best European Show' will kick off the show's European tour.
