Kadir "Amigo" Memis



German / 60min

In his latest work, Kadir “Amigo” Memis examines the topic of youth slang and language codes. His starting point is the compiled experiences young people from school, from the street and from the digital world. Five performers and a live musician transfer the destructive power of words into a linguistic and corporal reflection, a battle made up of rap and urban dance.
