Europa – My Home? My Future?
Poems and Essays by Young Adults from Berlin
What do young adults think of Europe? Does it mean only borderless travel to them – or is it the future, after all? Does it symbolize peace, democracy and collaboration, or bureaucracy and administrative chaos? Once again, we have asked them: Berlin secondary school students have given artistic voice to their opinions in our workshop of ideas. From poems to essays to impressive slam poetry, anything goes. The texts are presented by a prominent guest:
Led by Boris Aljinovic
Boris Aljinovic has wowed audiences with his performances at the Renaissance Theater in Berlin, for many years during the Sunday TV mystery, and as one of the “7 Dwarves”. When he is not in front of the camera, he writes fairy-tales and records audiobooks. His work has been honoured with the “German Audiobook Award” and the 2012 “Children’s Audiobook Prize”.
and Olivia Marei
Olivia Marei grew up in Austria and Singapore and studied acting in London, after which she moved to Berlin. In Germany, she has performed at various theatres; since early 2018 she has been playing the role of police inspector Toni Ahrens in the TV series Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten. Privately, Olivia Marei champions tolerance and diversity and a strong image of women. For what feels like years, she has been writing a novel which may never be completed.
