Story Sharing Universum presents:

I’m So Here   – A crazy and diverse performance about identity

23.-25.2. at 7pm Vuotalo, Mosaiikkitori 2, Helsinki

In this strange place I ended up in…

do I look the same?

do I feel the same?

do I think the same?

do I act the same?

is this still me?

The main theme in I´m So Here is the individual and cultural identity from the perspective of the newcomer. How have I been received in the country and society where I moved or fled, and how has it affected me? What do I carry with me from my background and how do I and my identity change in the new culture and who then have I become? The texts of the performances are based on the life stories of the working group.

In I´m So Here we invite you to experience a variety of stories and scenes like… The Iraqi Panther- Hunter meets the Finnish-Bolivian gringo… the best home-made Yugoslavian pop-music … the Bollywood diary… Pakistani street theater style agitation and many other inspiring and unlikely numbers in this heartwarming event.
