"Welcome" has been created as one of four story nights of the two years project CONTE-QUEST (2021-2023).

Betsy Dentzer and Luisa Bevilacqua created this project to promote the art of storytelling for adults in Luxembourg. The purpose of CONTE-QUEST was to build up the loyalty of this new audience over the long term. To reach this goal, the artists explored new artistic forms that went beyond traditional shows and conventional frameworks.

The story nights aimed to introduce the audience to the very diverse repertoire of oral literature in so-called "unusual" places, i.e. places outside the ordinary theatrical context. "Welcome" took place at the Quartierstuff Grünewald (Kirchberg) and was organised in collaboration with: Coordination culturelle de la Ville de Luxembourg, Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg, Fonds de Kirchberg.
