Competence oriented open learning for disadvantaged learners


Exile (Exil) is a hybrid programme consisting of stories (as poems) based on experiences, impressions, moods and thoughts of Dorothe Römer in connection with her work as a managing person of several homes for refugees in a small spa town in the rural area of Northern Hesse.

The stories and poems are being set to music by Aaron Nagel and Fee Marie Römer and performed in a Talk-to-Music dialogue.

Exile is a filter for the stories of the refugees, a means to make us understand the pains at their origin, their passages and their challenges and culture clashes in new surroundings, environments, contexts and communities.

Exile aims to create understanding and consciousness from the perspective of a “professional” working in integration in Germany – played out in a change of text and music to listen and reflect.
