Here in Germany we live in freedom, peace and safety. This is a privilege we can utilize. It strengthens us individually. We can use this strength to speak up for fellow human beings who do not have this freedom.
In the theatre project „brothers in arms“ we use our privilege to relate individuals from two countries, who can not create this relation personally at the moment: Iran and Israel. We turn ourselves into satellites who receive in each country and who then, back in Germany, broadcast what they have heard.
How does it happen, that young people who could have gotten along well under different circumstances start to shoot at each other? What makes a human prize the execution of an order above the native empathy? We, here in Germany, have no clue what it is like to live with the impending danger of a war that would affect our lives thoroughly.
We want to create awareness.
We want to build bridges.
To do so, we need your help.
What we have and what we need.
We need about 20.000 € to realize this project.
Right now, there are 8.000 € missing and our many attempts to get further public funding failed.
Why we need to do this.
And be part of our crowd.
