After the glamorous successes of the transnational ensemble Hajusom, the young talent group of Hajusom comes into the spotlight: The Neue Sterne negotiate in their performance in a very personal, humorous and dramatic way, different role attributions in the gender debacle. Role models, dress codes and attributions of male / female characters are explored, transformed and re-mixed. The performers from Iran, Afghanistan and West African countries provide a wealth of testimonials and openly discuss their visions of a new freedom.

The live music of the young Turkish musician Derya Yildirim (voc, saz, tanbur, piano) with samples by Viktor Marek, creates a special kind of atmosphere for a gender utopia.
