In collaboration with Humboldt University, Berlin, Maxim Gorki Theatre-Berlin, and the University of Bilgi, Istanbul, this showcase presents the culmination of four weeks in Berlin and Istanbul. During the month of August, the program explored the concept of borders (and walls) through the lenses of art and literature as employed by writers, filmmakers, performers and visual artists. The showcase, inspired by workshops with Maxim Gorki and educational director, Janka Pankus, is live performance, dance, original music composition, spoken word, and multimedia presentations with a focus on city as text/city as performance as seen through the eyes of 21 students from the University of Washington, Seattle.

How do we tell the story of the city? How do we record memory? What is "our" story? What is "your" story of the city?
