KRIEG. Stell dir vor, er wäre hier (Theater Strahl Berlin)
What if there was a war – not somewhere far away, but here in Europe! The democratic system has collapsed and fascist dictatorships have taken over. You are leaving everything behind and flee. In an Egyptian refugee camp you and your family are trying to start a new life. But, since you have no visa, you are not allowed to go to school, can’t learn Arabic nor get a job. You feel an outsider and are longing for home. But – where is home? Together with actors and visual artists, Anna Vera Kelle set out to create a theatre experience that gives the audience a tangible sense of life as a refugee. In doing so, she addresses issues such as respect, empathy and the willingness of individuals, peoples and generations to take a step towards each other.
