We continue our theatrical research journey with our Belgian premiere at Theater Aan Zee (TAZ). The biggest theatre festivals in Belgium! We’ll perform five evenings in a row. In this archival page, you can find some of the insights that we gained during our presence.

Just like during all the other performances, every day we ask the participants:

What are the essential components for democracy as you would like it to be?

We give people 10 minutes to bring in their ideas. Some people come up with very creative answers, others stick to the basics. All together they form a palet of core values of the democracy they would like to live in.

We keep track of all their answers and visualize them live, in a word cloud. At the end of Oerol we’ll have a big overview of the essential components people named. But, do people also have the feeling that our current democracies are close enough to these visualizations? And what do they want to do when this is not the case? That’s where the dialogue continues.

We hope to meet you soon to join us!
