Sustainability and diversity is integrated in all aspects.
During 2016 each ensemble will make a small show based on its own free interpretation of the words ‘Freedom Prison’. The shows are presented in the respective countries.
The Ensemble Shows will be presented to the public at FAENGSLET on the days leading up to the Freedom Prison Show. Each show will run several times during the week.
