A theatrical encounter between peoples on happiness and money.

Online - Version

They receive parcels and letters from Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan and Germany containing personal stories - of the search for happiness and dreams of the future.
Where do you discover yourself in them? Are there experiences that all people in these areas share?

While theatres are closed, we want to try to bring these questions into our living rooms with you.

Transmitter unknown

Do you know what people in Kherson in southern Ukraine think about Western capitalism? Do you have a pen pal in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek who tells you how people there feed their families despite the economic crisis?

Parcels and letters from strangers, personal stories of the search for happiness and one's own dreams of the future reveal what all this also has to do with economics, work and money. Where do you recognise yourself in the thoughts of the strangers?

SENDER UNKNOWN is a theatrical encounter between peoples that wants to find out what really moves people in their lives. The aim is to find a common vision of happiness that does not end at national borders.

SENDER UNKNOWN is the next part of the performance series "Parcel from abroad". You can find more info HERE!
