The focus of the play Letters Home are literally letters home, which describe Berlin as perceived by those who have fled their home countries. They tell relatives and friends what was happened to them en route as they fled and of life in a refugee centre. They present reports of life in a new environment, a life between languages and worlds. These stories are relived on stage, showing respect for each and every voice.
The REFUGEE CLUB IMPULSE (RCI) is a self-run Berlin theatre project by refugees, which was developed in 2013 from an art cooperation in a refugee centre. Their first piece Letters Home was premiered in 2014 at the FESTIWALLA of the JugendtheaterBüro at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
