“When I was a child my mother used to tell me, that I am a citizen of the world. Of course I believed her, she was my mother. But the older I got, the more I understood that this is only my mother’s dream. Borders exist – for somebody more, for the luckiest less. Their lines and rules sometimes change, but they do exist.”
Intime Fremde is a performance project reflecting over the idea of limit and border, identity and nation, the encounter/collision of different anatomies. Europe got us used to travel low cost and feel at home in all the countries of the Union. But the old continent is scared and closes its own confines. Borders exist hidden everywhere. If it’s true that we’re all biologically similar, it’s also true we are all culturally diverse, and with different rights.
Are we finally not made of what we eat, we experience, we decide, we love, we fight for?
