Ali’s twin brother Anton has disappeared. After years, a postcard without a sender arrives at her house with nothing more than the word »Istanbul« on it. Ali rushes into the confusion of that city: the streets turn, colours and contours blur. And somewhere in the mirrors of bars and turning corners, she divines Anton and runs after him. Ali tries to leave gender, language and countries behind, until she realises: she can’t go on if she doesn’t know what came before.
Resident director Sebastian Nübling ventures with the ensemble into this opulent landscape of characters and stories. Potential fragments of identity are always looking for new configurations.
