The sea caves of Pegeia and the shipwreck of the EDRO III, is the location where a theatre stage will be set up to host a production with actors from different Mediterranean countries. The partners involved have already come together in creating a work on everything that unites them and the things that (appear to) separate them. The material for the project stems from the artists’ personal experiences, and the destination is a common future they envision through artistic creation, travelling, migration and peaceful co-existence.
