Like thousands of other fugitives, Marwan Arkawi fled from Syria to Sweden, where he ended up seeking asylum. But Arkawi resists being just ‘another refugee’ – he insists on being an individual.
In ‘We Who Live Backwards’, Arkawi takes us on a journey to discover life as a refugee as it is, helped by VR-glasses and headphones.
The play digs deeper to show what it implies on a personal level for a human being to flee; no more talking about refugees, now it’s time to talk with them.
‘We Who Live Backwards’ is a co-operation between Den Osynliga Teatern and Dramaten in Stockholm.
