Knowing there are no borders unless we think them…

For Artistic freedom! 200 theater people from Germany and abroad, a 6 hours workshop, discussions, writing down sentences, that are worse to write them down and an artist named Maxi Obexer, who wrote a kind of poem or statement out of all the sentences and thoughts: The Greifswalder Manifesto!

What we have in common

Standing on the threshold
Dancing along the borders
Words that fill our ears

Knowing the Other does not exist
Knowing there is no inside and no outside
Knowing there are no borders
Unless we think them

What we have in common
Are the things that make us different

Privileges if we share them
Words that move

What we share is
a trust in doubt
a gras pof crisis
an understanding of chaos

What we have in common
Are things that hurt us
Thea we ca be hurt
Mistrust of winners
Support fort he left-behind

Moments of trust
Moments of beauty
Moments of tears
Moments of powerlessness
Moments of happiness
Moments of tenderness
Moments of strength

Struggling with gravity
Getting up ever day
Fighting decay
Against hatred
Against destructive emotions

Trees that grow strong and tall
Words that fill our ears

Rhythms that we dance
Finding a voice that never fades
Echoing out into the universe
The universe we share

The pause before the difference
The search fort he way in
Into the common field
The search fort he shared space
The shared space of laughter

The presence oft he between

That we are guests
With hopes and desires
What we have in common
Is things that hurt us
That we can be hurt

That we can’t stop starting again

(Maxi Obexer and AGORA)
