Acts of Goodness is a theatrical trial of the extremely outdated and deeply problematic concept of goodness. It is a screening of goodness from political, religious, ethical, existential and aesthetical perspectives.

In an extensive interview project, young people in Greece, Serbia, Germany, France, Romania, Hungary, Britain, Italy, Spain, Finland, Holland and Sweden have answered the question of whether they have performed an ”act of goodness” in their life. Their stories form an absolutely contemporary document over a Europe that is ravaged by economic crises, a Europe that is commonly described as a continent where selfishness, greed, racism and brutality are spreading.
