German-Syrian actor Corinne Jaber presented her urgent and extraordinary play Oh my Sweet Land in Kolkata. It explores the crisis in Syria through the stories of its two million refugees. In addition Corinne also conducted a theatre workshop titled EXILE with 16 participants. The workshop explored the theme "Exile and Refugees". Every participant were asked to come along with a story related to either of the themes.
 

My first impression of India…
People, splendour of colours and noisiness.

Things in Kolkata that remind me of my home town…
nothing at all.

Something that caught my attention in India (and that is rather unusual in Germany)…
the fact that the entire life happens on the streets.

A memory of India that will stay
the laughter of people.

German-Syrian actor Corinne Jaber was last in London with her production of The Comedy of Errors for Shakespeare’s Globe’s World Shakespeare Festival. She has performed with the RSC, in Peter Brook’s Mahabharata and has won France’s prestigious Moliere Prize.
