A reflection about the possibility of the body to tell stories, deleting social and ethnic distinctions, and connecting people from different groups. The project focuses on the work of the dancers who decided to take part in the performance Connecting Fingers that had its premiere in Berlin at the English Theatre in June of 2015. The show shares stories from some refugees who live or have lived in camps outside Berlin. The refugees were interviewed about their personal lives, and they shared private anecdotes and political situations they experienced.
