Democracy everywhere is under pressure and populism is reaching new heights. Fake news, the spread of hatred and lies through social media, interference in foreign elections – these happen more and more frequently and shamelessly. So: how sick is our democracy and what can we do about it?

To answer this question, KVS launches Between Lands, a joint project with five international partners from major European cities. Each theatre commissions one writer, and in each city workshops and discussions take place. At the end of the process, the six writers will each write a short piece about democracy, which will then be shown by all six theatres, in a variety of forms and languages, directed by a local director based in each country. What it will be like will be a surprise – this is punk or pop-up theatre, propelled by the meeting of European writers, actors and directors.
