When Syrian refugees started arriving in Germany in 2015, Rebecca and Berlin based journalist, Jeanny Gering, introduced themselves to some of the families and started to record their conversations with a view to creating a play documenting their arrival and integration. The conversations continued for over 12 months and the pair are now working on a second draft of the script after 3 days of R&D in January. They hope to have a second, week long R&D in the Autumn when they will be integrating sequences of movement to the verbatim script with the input of movement director, Rachael Nanjonjo (Old Vic 12).
