What's On

Dash Café: Imagining Europe

25 September | Rich Mix | £5 Book here

Our first Autumn Dash Café brings together actors, activists, artists and audiences to explore ideas through discussion, performance, music and (optional) participation.

Imagining Europe investigates the ancient myths, historical legends and contemporary narratives that define our sense of what Europe is and what it could be. 

The Café also kicks off our new grand theatrical tour; following a workshop with European actors at the Young Vic, Dash TransNational begins its travelling workshop and forum of research and development in search of Europe.

Imagining Europe: Call-out for European Performers

23-24 September 2019 | Young Vic, London


We are looking for performers - primarily actors – from continental Europe who have had some professional training (although not necessarily in the UK or in English). Actors born in the UK with particular interest in European questions are also welcome to apply. Some professional experience is required.

We will offer this workshop free of charge and will run on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th September from 10am-6pm at the Young Vic on The Cut. We may invite you to attend all or part of the 2-day timeframe.

Participants will work with Dash Arts' TransNational Director Tim Supple and dramaturg Katie Ebner-Landy to investigate material in search of the essence of a shared European identity. The workshops with theatre artists in London will be followed by workshops in other UK and continental cities, as a first step to creating a trans-European, multi-lingual production that dramatizes the story of European unification – its myths and realities.

The workshops will be a collective, physical, playful and instructive sharing of skills and experience. We will end the sessions with a public sharing of excerpts generated by the workshop at Rich Mix on Wednesday 25th September.

Please see the application pack for how to apply. 



This year, Dash Arts has entered Eutopia, investigating what it means to be European. Through our Cafés, Gigs, Eurosquat and future productions, we will highlight and celebrate Europe’s diversity and hidden marvels; confront generalization and encourage new insights and fierce debate.
