Shifting Perspectives


︎ Deutsche Version

How are identities related to places? What does “home” mean in the context of global mobility? What personal memories do people bring to Berlin?

Shifting Perspective is a workshop and performance in public space of Neukölln, Berlin. Blindfolded, alone or in pairs, participants meet four protagonists with diverse migration backgrounds, who recount a personal story of home as they guide the participants through a space. The situation of being blindly lead by a stranger creates a momentary negotiation between trust and control. Deprived of their vision, the participants immerse in a narration made out of words and the surrounding sounds. The personal encounters engage the audience in stories of fare away homes projected on Berlin.

In cooperation with B_Tour. Shown at Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2017, plus in the context of the conference "How do we achieve integration?" of Heinricht Böll Stiftung and 48 Stunden Neukölln 2016.
