Come as you are # teil 2 is the second part of an ongoing research on the cultural adaption of Syrian refugee dancers to the German dance performance scene, five years after their arrival. Together with three Syrian Dancers, Nir de Volff created the performance Come as you are # Berlin in the summer of 2017. The work revealed the fundamentally different dancing styles, they danced in Syria, and their first step into the local German dance scene. Come as you are # teil 2 is a new chapter in their diary on the mental and physical struggles, disappointments, hopes, and success of these Syrian artists in Germany, as well as their experiences and observations among European artists.
