Paralyse شلل

Palestinian-German
simultaneous performance 



The much-cited global village seems to have become reality: Thanks to modern technologies, long distances are no more than a stone's throw away. Long-distance phone calls, on the other hand, are only a vague memory, and video telephony is no longer pop-culture dreams of the future. And yet encounters at eye level and harmonious coexistence are more utopia than reality - origin, borders and prejudices still play a major role. But why is that so?

In Paralyse شلل, six actors get to the bottom of this question. 4,000 kilometers away from each other they play simultaneously - in Ramallah and Cologne. In a hybrid of video installation and spoken theater, the personal and private are juxtaposed with the grand political narratives of the two cultural areas, and stumbling blocks on the path to greater cohesion are examined. In the process, the question arises again and again: Do cultural identities exist at all, or are they actually regional and personal relationships? Who are we? Who am I - and if so, how many?
