Jetzt bin ich hier

So, since I found out that the world is just totally shitty, I’ve actually been positively surprised pretty often.

Now I’m here. In the here and now. But what possibilities do I have in my present? And what am I actually going to do in the future?

How do you live in a Europe where right-wing populism is on the rise and a new kind of patriotism is running rampant?
What strategies can post-migrants and people of color use to find solidarity with each other?
Proceeding from their own life experiences, young adults discuss together with the theater maker Simone Dede Ayivi the personal and general status quo.

In doing so, an evening of temporary liberation has been created. An evening of self-empowerment created from self-entertainment. Far beyond the political situation. It is about solidarity, menstruation complaints and why you should always bet against yourself when it comes to sports.
