Sodom is a young Syrian-German theater collective. Most of it's members have previously cooperated on different projects. The play 'Farewell, Salmons' was a starting point and first chapter of our artistic discussion of current social and political issues. It was developed after one year of virtual cooperation between Damascus and Berlin and realized during a three-week artistic residency at Schloss Bröllin e.V.
But we did not expect to be able to contain all our thoughts and ideas in one piece, the discussion is designed to last and evolve around upcoming events as well as our individual backgrounds. With social protests of one form or another going on in each of our home countries, we hope to not only talk about these focal points of conflict but rather the underlying developments of volatile humanity. We want to ask whether art can offer salvation and we are looking forward to be shaken ourselves in what we believe theater can or cannot do.
