About the power of friendship and why we need it – Shida Bazyar


Streaming from Theater am Tanzbrunnen

“We don’t exist in this world. Here we’re neither Germans nor refugees, we don’t present the news and we’re not the experts. We’re some joker they don’t yet know if they’ll be able to use”. Following her highly praised debut novel, “Tehran is Peaceful at Night”, Shida Bazyar again writes – with both impact and empathy – about the present tensions. Sisters in Arms is the story of three young women who know what it means to be questioned, constantly and everywhere, because of one’s origins. In a world full of violence, hatred and ignorance, they look for ways to deal with their feelings. But in spite of it all, one thing gives them strength: their unconditional friendship – until one dramatic night shakes everything up. Highly topical, impressive and moving. Host: Miryam Schellbach
