A Concert Trilogy
Germany is a destination for many refuges – but notonly those escaping currently known conflict areas and not only since 2015. In Refugee II, musicians who fled not only the Arabian peninsula or North Africa, but also Croatia and Russia, among other places, will perform. Refugees – the most widely discussed topic in politics will become the site for diverse musical encounters at the Komische Oper Berlin. In three concerts, musicians with a wide variety of backgrounds, both coming from and living in various countries, will share with stories and music their respective paths in life – from escaping Nazi Germany, to migration within Germany in the second half of the 20th century, to the movement of refugees in the summer of 2015. Audience members and musicians will perform a change in perspective, joining each other on stage at the Komische Oper Berlin, lending their voices and ears to the unheard and unvoiced fates beyond the all too familiar political positions.
