...brings a dancer, singer and visual artist together, who try to describe "home" by their discipline.
Ceren Oran is a Turkish dancer and choreographer, who was born in Istanbul, grew up there and moved to Europe to further her education at the age of twenty-three.
Nihan Devecioglu is a Turkish singer and composer, who was born in Munich and moved to Turkey for school and education. Now she is back living in Munich.
Funda Özcan is a Turkish visual artist, who was born and grew up in Garmisch and lives in Munich and has always lived Bavaria. She hasn’t been to Turkey since 2001.
In the performance “Heimat…los!”, three artists will get together and use their authentic emigration backgrounds, to make global research about the difficulties of immigration and the disruption of identities found between the "old" and the "new" home. The project illuminates the invisible walls between western cultures and on the European map. Who decides who is legal? “No Person is Illegal” (Kein Mensch ist illegal), but still, all stand at the door of a visa office every year and hope to be recognized as legal in the country for one more year while having hundreds of questions in their heads about “Home”:
What is home?
Where is home?
Is it the feeling of being in limbo or is it just not being able to arrive in their new home?
