Participants of Project Greenland leave for Greenland by ship. Looking for a fresh start in their lives, they leave unexpectedly quickly because a new pandemic is imminent. 

The ship is damaged and when the engine fails during a storm, the ship drops anchor. Where Gus threatens to polarize, Jane continues to doubt. Their love is tested. When they finally reach Greenland, Jane wonders: 'Can I continue with the man I love so much?'

The New Continent is a compelling and heartwarming play with music and movement, written and directed by Geert Niland. The performance is performed by twenty talented (inter)nationals from the Brainport region.

“I think it's much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong.” (Richard P. Feynman)
