Kien: We all come from different countries across Europe. We want to show that even if we come from different cultures and countries, we can still put together something as big as this project. We cross stereotypes, lines, interact with each other.
Mihail: Every country has its borders. We have a border and we just cross that border. And in addition [...] we bring our country with us to the other countries. Who just cross the lines, our lines and our borders are defeated.
Jordan: It was a surprise for me. I imagined it would definitely be a lot of work, physically and mentally. Also, I was excited to meet people from different countries and share ideas with you [...]. I thought it would be quite confusing because we all come from completely different countries, but it all came together.
Lea: Normally I just dance, maybe speak a little bit sometimes. But here I dance with a lot of text units. [...] From the social level, I was surprised that people are so open. I imagined... that not everybody can talk to everybody. [...] That was my experience before. But it's not like that at all. I am really surprised about the openness.
