In the third nexus workshop, Kurdish and German authors encounter, because the focus of the joint work was on text, communication and dramaturgy.
Mirza Metin asked the guests in preparation for the meeting to write a monologue, which should refer to the sentence “And then a stranger person came in…”. The workshop started with getting to know the invited authors. After Jennifer Merten presented the development, the previous cooperation and the objectives of nexus, the attendees started talking about their culture, their way of life and work. It turned out that the authors pursue very different approaches – regardless of their origin or language. The first evening ended with stories from different myths and fairy tales of the two cultures.
