A sniper in a house that’s about to collapse, a young man receives a German passport for his 18th birthday, a young woman realises that her mother must have experienced something terrible, a son returns to a war-torn country. Flight that determines me is a literature workshop, a safe space, a way of working, a principle of thought. Over a year we wrote, discussed our throats dry, thought our eyes moist, bit our lips salty, smoked our fingers black and considered which stories remain unwritten: ours.
Over a year five authors sought after a form for their material. They met with experts in the areas of art, activism and empowerment, and exchanged ideas. Now the resulting texts will be presented as staged readings.
