Undesirable Elements/Berlin, 2003

ABOUT

Undesirable Elements/Berlin explores the lives of men and women living in Berlin for various reasons; those who have experienced migration or who belong to more than one culture. The cast included individuals with origins in Vietnam, Eritrea, Croatia, Israel, the United States and Palestine. All six performers perceive Berlin as the place to (re)examine their histories and identities. Undesirable Elements/Berlin is an emotionally moving challenge to traditional attitudes towards one’s “own” culture and “the others” emerges, a poetic expression of human diversity and similarity.
