verwirrung | تشويش | confusion 

A Syrian-German apartment performance that allows the audience, as voyeurs, a glimpse into the most private and at the same time opens the space for the political.  Two people meet in their own apartment and negotiate the radical upheavals they have experienced in the form of system change, flight and exile.  

In-Between is credo: Between the old and the new; Between cultures; Between time, interpersonal.

A search for identity and renewal.

The question of patriarchal repression and feminist identity are negotiated from their own biographical perspectives. Two women, two systems: one from the former GDR and one from Syria.  

A performance, a chamber play, an installation - an emotional, musical and transcultural art event.
