From October 16 to 18, 2015 the theater was made to shine. For one week-end artists, scientists and activists gathered in all rooms of the Kammerspiele to reflect upon the future of the European immigration society. Exemplary initiatives and organizations established networks among themselves and allied with the theater: CUCULA, Grandhotel Cosmopolis, Bellevue di Monaco, Refugee Radio Network, Social Ride and Kiron University, just to name a few.
In lectures and discussions, international guests from politics, philosophy and sociology drafted new paths of European refugee policy beyond isolation and nationalism: Elsbeth Guild, Ousmane Diarra, Mark Terkessidis, Napuli Paul Langa, Armin Nassehi, Manuela Bojadjiev, Francois Gemenne, Heribert Prantl, and many others.
Genre-crossing cultural projects presented exemplary theatrical works, performances, documentaries and concerts, featuring, among others, IDENTITÄTEN DEHNEN (“Expanding Identities”) by Gintersdorfer/Klaßen, Adnan Softić with BIBBY CHALLENGE, PARADIZE MASTAZ by Hajusom and the Senegalese musicians from MARK ERNESTUS' NDAGGA RHYTHM FORCE.
Within the framework of the OPEN BORDER KONGRESS “the Second International Schlepper & Schleuser Congress” dealing with the border-crossing business and the facilitators’ trade took place in 2015.
