Toolbox #2: What would have become of us if we had followed our passion?

Golschan Ahmad Haschemi, Verena Meyer


Golschan Ahmad Haschemi and Verena Meyer build multidimensional spaces. Inspired by several plays from this year’s festival, they will address the following (and further) questions: How do we perceive each other? What is the meaning of loyalty? Who would we be today if not for …? 
They have invited several interesting guests to join them in three conversations. Together, they will share thoughts, cut through what is familiar, and further expand potential new spaces.
