WE WHO LIVE BACKWARDS
This performance is a part of CPH STAGE
Like thousands of other fugitives, Marwan Arkawi fled from Syria to Sweden where he ended up seeking asylum. But Arkawi resists being just ‘another refugee’ – he insists on being an individual. In WE WHO LIVE BACKWARDS, Marwan Arkawi takes us on a journey to discover life as a refugee as it is, helped by VR-glasses and headphones.
WE WHO LIVE BACKWARDS digs deeper to show, what it implies on a personal level for a human being to flee. No more talking about refugees, now it’s time to talk with them. WE WHO LIVE BACKWARDS is a cooperation between Den Osynliga Teatern and Dramaten in Stockholm. Supported by Kulturkontakt Nord, Nordisk Kulturfond, Konstnärsnämnden, Stockholm Municipality and the Embassy of Sweden in Copenhagen.
