Home Stories/ Public Diary Project (2008- ongoing)
A trilogy of absurd anecdotes connects different locations and spaces of migration through Turkish specialities: Doener Kebabs are sold in China as a German delicacy, we’re told by the narrator’s voice. A woman dressed as a Geisha is performing awkwardly a Japanese ritual dance in a London Kebab shop. A British man of Japanese descent laments being mistaken for Chinese. A Senegal-born Viennese purchases a “durum” at a “Würstelstand” (Viennese sausage booth) and compares it to sushi from Senegal.
Through the polyphony of voices and languages the boundaries between biographical narration, cultural location, fact and fiction are blurred in a caleidoscopic chain of absurd scenarios.
Cast: Deniz Soezen, Tetsuro Nagata, Niang Serigne Mor
As part of the Underground City 21 Parcours Kabuki Kebab was screened on a TV-monitor at a local kebab-shop called "Nestroy Imbiss - Pizza Kebab Falafel", Praterst 30. We would like to thank the shop-owners.
