Check out the trailer below for the new play by Mohamed Wa Baile entitled Kein Volk von Schafen, translated as No Nation of Sheep in English.

Following up from his stage debut Mohrenkopf im Weissenhof, the new play’s title refers to the recent referendum that took place in Switzerland to decide on whether or not immigrants should be deported immediately for committing minor crimes. While Switzerland voted against the proposal, Wa Baile’s play illustrates some of the struggles people of colour face in so-called multicultural Europe, especially with regards to identity.

The play premieres on the 19th March at the ONO Culture Bar as part of the Week Against Racism being held in Bern, starting this coming weekend. The play will also be performed alongside Mohrenkopf im Weissenhof at ERIF’s forthcoming conference in Innsbruck later this year.
