Performance, 2019

Dear fear living in my chest, what do you wish to tell me?

In the middle of a small village called Gerswalde, located 100 km away from Berlin, lies a ‘jugendheim’ (youth home) where young refugee boys are staying. During my residency in the village, i worked with several of them. ‘Dear Fear’ is a performance inspired from their stories, the fear of the people in a former GDR village, and personal stories of fear.

The performance is a a part of the ongoing performance and exhibition series DIE BUEHNE,  curated by Lea Schleiffenbaum & Anna-Lena Werner at Der Große Garten, Gerswalde, Brandenburg (Uckermark).

Dear Fear was produced in collaboration with of Özgür Erkök, Tuana Ayaydınlı and Laura Siewert.
