Through multilingual dialogues in German, Polish and English, beat-boxing and dance performances, young city dwellers present their vision of an ideal city, their daily experiences, utopias, dreams and stereotypes.

The play “The Ideal City” is the result of an intense collaboration between young people from Berlin and Warsaw and professional directors and choreographers who came together in the summer of 2009 to launch a theatre enterprise spanning across different nations. This resulted in authentic testimonials of two different and yet similar living environments.
