2016/2 SUMMER – WHO DO YOU THINK I AM?
An evening of short plays about social/cultural/secret/
8. / 11.-14. / 17.-20. July, 8.30 p.m.
Audimax, Von-Melle-Park 4, 20146 Hamburg
Three short plays about young Europeans who struggle with their social identities, relationships and the expectations of others. The mysterious name Abulkasem, a group of school boys, an elusive terrorist, a refugee apple picker, an Iranian woman director, a blind date in a park and a jar filled with ashes invite the audience to explore their own prejudices. By the way: The first play of the evening will be our award-winning production of INVASION!
by Jonas Hassen Khemiri
Abulkasem. This word can be used as a verb, an adjective or a noun. lt changes its meaning constantly. As a name it connects a character from the Arabian Nights with a group of school boys, an elusive terrorist, a refugee apple picker hiding from immigration control, a boy who picks up a girl in a bar, and an eccentric Iranian woman director. Wherever Abulkasem appears, chaos follows. However, the important question is not who or what is Abulkasem, but what makes Abulkasem so important?

YOU WERE AFTER POETRY
by Steven Bloomer
In their relationship, Marc and Cathy haven’t been themselves lately. But if love is what comes after parks and poetry, then what comes after love? Is it possible you get to know the other and yourself even better than before?
by Steven Bloomer
Two strangers meet in a park to anonymously exchange their deepest secret. They free themselves of it and get on with their lives – at least that’s the deal. Yet, knowing so much about someone else isn’t quite as liberating as they had expected.
