Werther

In the hyperreality of the malls and urban landscapes of Dubai we have processed interviews with various characters as cleaners, construction workers, expatriates, aspiring actors, students and touristguides into dramatized stories and musical songs.
These stories were then re-enacted by amateur-actors/singers, who themselves resembled the dramatic characters we had been interviewing. By showing the ambiguous (identity) role of the people that are interviewed we aimed to show the fragility of the dreams they (and everyone of us) tend to carry.
