A degradation in three acts

Our constitution is based legally and ideally on the equal treatment and, above all, the inviolability of all human beings. But although this dignity is prerequisite for our democracy, it is also utopian: After all, it is violated every day. Human dignity is also critical for the idea of asylum.


"People who escape violence, war and terror in other parts of the world are to find protection here", says the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. But who decides what is "war", what is "terror"? Who deserves the status of "war refugee"? Does the physical integrity of one group count more than another’s?

This devised play is both research and indictment – an attempt to understand what the injustices of German asylum policies are based on and what it would mean to establish human dignity as prime directive and public policy.  

The Iranian director, author and curator Alireza Daryanavard explores issues of resistance and activism.
