The experiment is inspired by the artists' research into Arabic shadow theatre (Khayal al Zill) in Cairo in spring 2017. Similar to the streets of Cairo the installation is lacking a shadow player as an animating story teller behind the white curtain. What kind of theatre is created when the printing of a text becomes the role of the mover and director?

Special thanks to Dr. Martin Steffens and the team of Kulturnetzwerk Neukölln for enabling the first performance at Kindl Brauerei!
