theatrical mapping with on-site specialists
Forum Freies Theater Düsseldorf
Theatrical travels between historical German images of the Orient and the reality of the lives of young people with immigration backgrounds, across diverse urban landscapes in the affluent city of Düsseldorf. Assuming Germany was a country of immigration. Assuming that Max von Oppenheim, one of the leading “Orientalists” of his time – researcher, archeologist & son of today’s biggest private bank of Germany – suggests a plan to King Wilhelm II in 1914 “How to revolutionize the regions of our enemies” by having jihad proclaimed there. For which Qur’an has to be bended a bit with the help of an Osman sheik & by which they find a rather promising new model of local warfare.
