Mokhallad Rasem and German choreographer Helge Letonja will be investigating the analogy between art and life with a cast of artists and performers.

Not only does every person have a story, every person also actively writes their own story – by chasing after their dreams, by demanding a particular place in the world. This situation is very similar to that of an actor or dancer who is auditioning for a role: at that moment, in that context, the actor or dancer has to show what he or she can do. And make it clear which role he or she aspires to: a main role, a supporting role, an extra…. If you don’t succeed at an audition or at acquiring a certain place in life, then in both cases you have to ask yourself: How can I adapt? How can I have the most flexible possible dialogue with reality, with what this specific context requires of me? And then you give it another try. And another… in the secret hope that the world will change a little bit as a result.

Working in close collaboration with the German choreographer Helge Letonja, Mokhallad Rasem will be playfully investigating this analogy between art and life with a cast of professional artists and performers. All of them come from a mixed background or mixed origins but have lived for some time in Bremen. The performers will be able to easily switch roles, holding auditions and doing auditions themselves – for art, and for life.
