Our new play will have T.S. Eliot's 'Cocktail Party' as a dramatic skeleton and with it we'd like to create a disturbing encounter between Germans and Syrians on and off stage. An encounter that confronts with questions of good and fault within overall guilt laden situations.
And moving on: Is the history of violence going to be continued within the Syrian and other societies? What will power relations look like and what are the (new?) spaces of violence and destruction? Look forward to a vicious reinterpretaion of Eliot's faultless little girl, the shrink, and the stranger!
