Winterreise

رحلة الشتاء

January 2017. The Gorki's newly founded Exil Ensemble – consisting of seven new-Berliner, professional actors from Afghanistan, Syria and Palestine – beginns the research process for its first production with Gorki resident director Yael Ronen. Two weeks of winter travel by bus through Germany, a foray to Switzerland. How do Ayham Majid Agha, Maryam Abu Khaled, Hussein Al Shatheli, Karim Daoud, Tahera Hashemi, Mazen Aljubbeh, Kenda Hmeidan and Yael Ronen perceive this land of exile during the trip? How do they evaluate their encounters with natives: with their fellow performer Niels Bormann, with the experts who try to explain Germany, or with the bus driver? What mutual overtures are made, how are interpersonal relations explored?
