Directed by Serge Seiden, Associate Producing Artistic Director, The Studio Theatre, and followed by a discussion with creators Konradin Kunze and Sophia Stepf.

Cast: Maboud Ebrahimzadeh and Jonathan Feuer

a small, small world is based on the life of Hamidur Rahman from Bangladesh who, after his appeal for asylum in Germany was rejected, tried to cross Greenland on foot in an attempt to reach Canada and seek asylum there. He collapsed along the way and was coincidentally rescued by a helicopter. Soon after his return to Germany, Rahman committed suicide. This interview-based play was devised in India and Bangladesh.
