The performance Remembering the Future deals with the process of coping with memories and with their influence on our lives. Stories, myths, fairy tales and legends from Damascus, passed on and adapted for centuries, form the basis of this project. The performance is the result of artistic cooperation between the Munich-based choreographer Philip Bergmann and the Syrian choreographer Mey Sefan, in order to tell these stories anew.

A discussion forum will consider the possibility of transcultural ways of remembering. Artists and scholars involved in the project, will discuss the meaning of cultural and physical memory regarding the perception of self identity. They will also discuss the implications of the concept of «diversity» for their work.
