Story Sharing Universum presents:
I’m So Here part III – A crazy and diverse performance about identity
15 – 20 February, Theatre House Universum, 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?
I´m So Here is a series of performances whose main themes are 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 this the third and last part of I´m So Here we invite you to the Universum Theatre 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.
