Story Sharing Universum presents:
I’m So Here – A crazy and diverse performance about identity
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.
