Places are not tied to identity but do have an effect on our identities. In global city, how are people integrating and what does home mean?
I interviewed Korean immigrants who had moved more than 50 years ago to Germany as miners and nurses.
The question is if and how they are integrated in the society. Where is home for these people uprooted from their origins?
This solo performance started from the question of what is home? What is the meaning of a displaced body in a different society?
"I round, You square
You high, I here
You asparagus, I radish..."
