Past Dates

They come from Egypt, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia. They have been living in Dresden for a few months or several years and they are here to dispel the prejudices and clichés about deserts and camels, the occidental perspective of the Orient and its Arabian nights, the romantic fantasies of turbans, djinns and belly-dance. The eleven performers and musicians featured in “Morgenland” invite us to become acquainted with their culture and their personal stories.
