Stage version of Aras Ören's "Berlin Trilogy": Björn Kuhligk

Performers: Sylvana Seddig | Leopold von Verschuer | Matthias Rheinheimer

Starting in Kreuzberg's Naunynstraße, Aras Ören's long poems „What does Niyazi want in Naunyn Street“ “The brief dream from Kağıthane,“ and „The Foreigner is also a House“ published between 1973 and 1980, tell the stories of Turkish migrant workers – of their dreams, their fears and hopes – and also of Germans who lived in Naunynstraße for generations. The poesiefestival berlin will bring the “Berlin Trilogy” to the stage in 2022 in an adaptation by poet Björn Kuhligk, staged by director, translator, and actor Leopold von Verschuer.

Project leader: Andreas Conrad
