Stefanovski's Hotel Europa (2000) - an avant-garde script that has been staged monumentally by 9 directors and performed by 25 actors from mainly Balkan and Baltic countries (the five-city project was produced by former Living Theatre actor Chris Torch, now of Stockholm-based Intercult) - depicts a Europe that at once attracts and rejects, a continent in which masses of people do migrate, only to encounter still more borders, old and new. The diversity of Eastern European voices is rendered with virtuosity and a fine sense of the real thing: from earthy to the poetic, from the up-todate Euro-bureaucratese to local slang, from "europeretta" kitsch to a suave non-figurative word usage springing from realms of the unconscious and filtered over centuries.
