Born to Wander (Journey / DROM)

For years, the journey from Novi Sad to Berlin was the only way out of poverty and discrimination for the Roma of the Balkans. But when the countries of the region were officially declared “safe,” it became impossible to claim a refugee status in Germany. How can those who are stuck between expulsion from Germany and agony in the Balkans attain a normal, predictable life?
The production is the result of cooperation between artists from Hungary, Serbia, Romania and Germany, both Romany and non-Romany. Through the real stories of Roma who began the journey on the so-called “Balkan road,” the production reveals the poetry and politics of “being on the road” (Ando Drom), reflecting on contemporary Romany identity and culture.
It all takes the form of a sensationalist television show which is full of self-criticism, black humour, and of course, a dash of chaos.

Theatre performance in English with Hungarian subtitles.
