A theatre play about the refugee crisis of 2016/17?
What could possibly be funny about that topic?
Imagine the former refugees integrated themselves perfectly.
Imagine a future where a german woman can become an imam.
Imagine a future without cultural differences.
Now that’s worth a laugh isn’t it?
Homohalal is unmasking the ideal of the friendly, multicultural, tolerant society, making clear that integration is a never ending process everyone has to take part in.
At “Independent Theatre 1st” in Osaka I was given the chance to share my personal experience living as a foreigner in Japan, raising cultural sensitivity especially because Japan is such a heterogene society.
