Survival International Performance Festival, Berlin
Sep 5th, 2014
"White wedding" focuses on transmigration and in particular people who move abroad and are eventually forced to get married for papers. It examines the questions surrounding immigration policies, fake marriages, and the drastic measures which people have to take in order to ensure their survival in a foreign country. I am focusing on women who need to get married abroad to avoid their traditional patriarchal duties in their local communities. This performance will also look at how men are implicated in arranged marriages to local or foreign women which may help them attain a more honorable place in their families.
