EUROPÉ - A National Assembly is inspired by the spirit of Dziady, a Polish ritual during which food is prepared for the deceased. One hundred years after the Treaty of Versailles and the resulting national assemblies in Weimar and Warsaw, the polyphonic spirits of European democracy, 1919, are channeled and cooked into a feast. In a theatrical assembly between past and present, between reality and fiction, between criticism and utopia, their unfulfilled dreams and unanswered questions are brought to the fore.

[...] during the conversation it became clear how the KULA company, apart from fusion cooking, aims at fusion acting, in which everyone learns from each other [...] brings together different forms of behavior as well as diverse theater aesthetics. All without leveling them out. The KULA company takes the theatrical bull by the horns [...], 06.11.2019, Barbara Villiger Heilig
