A Glimpse into the Past

Our first play

Our first theatre play was developed in 2015. Guided by the theme of  ‘arrival’, our initial practise sessions were permeated by discussions and creative improvisation activities. In the course of these activities, we extensively negotiated questions like: Who am I? Who are you? What are we looking for in this city? Overall, our first play represents a melange of first-hand experiences made by individual members of the group and, furthermore, deals with issues of origin, identity and future.

The play’s plot is centered around two young men, one from Germany, the other from Syria. As they meet each other in the context of a welcome week at a German university, they begin to talk and let the audience participate in witnessing their memories.

The play is performed in German, with parts in the Kurdish language, and it is musically accompanied by a group of Kurdish musicians.
