Fünf Figuren, ein Schauspieler, ein Koffer und eine blaue Ukulele … Die fünf Figuren entstehen in Windeseile aus einem Koffer heraus durch Kostüm-, Haltungs- und Stimmwechsel, verbildlicht durch eine wilde Mischung aus Choreografie, Improvisation und Musik, mitten unter den Kindern, die angespielt werden.
Jahrelange Theatererfahrung von Tanz- bis Sprechtheater, reichlich Arbeit mit Kindern und Jugendlichen und eigenen Töchtern fließen ein in dieses „Zurück zu den Wurzeln“-Spielstück ohne Technik und aufwendigen Aufbau.
In a cold cold winter a mother, father and two little girls started off for a long trip. Nothing more but two big bags, was all they could carry on the road far from home. But they needed no more for it was hot and sweaty under the banana palm tree. In a new land it happened that the guitar learned new songs the adventures went along with new movements and thoughts became as big as never before.
Seeing different places, meeting new people, acknowledging other cultures degrade habitual thinking. Travel provides you the anonymity to risk new ways of being in the world. However, travelling can be both wonderful and horrifying experience. Most of people travel for a few days, weeks or a limited period of time to escape their daily routine. What kind of neurological processes happen in the brain when you travel for months or even years and how does travel activity influence your behavior?
Having a permanent change of countries and languages, a constant search for a bed and warm meal, being continuously surrounded by unknown faces in their own culture can also become a routine. Is a `world traveler` an occupation? Can travelling make you a junkie? Can travelling ever disconnect you from your own culture? Can it really?
The performance „Where you come from?“ was inspired by travelling only. After 12 months in Southeast Asia with his wife and two daughters, Mikel Ulfik has never stopped being an artist. He left behind the daily routine in Berlin and resigned from well-established theatres in Germany to return to his artistic roots; he is back performing on the street. Now he is on the stage with everything he owns right now: his family, a backpack and a guitar.
In “Where you come from?” Mikel relieves us his emotional world as a globe trotter through songs and movement. Far from his hometown his smile is bigger, his voice clearer and his heartbeat slowlier. Will he ever return?
