HAJUSOM! Short biography
HAJUSOM! is the name of a group of young under age refugees originating from West Africa, Central Africa, Afghanistan,
Serbia and Iran.
With the help and artistic guidance of Ella Huck, Claude Jansen and Dorothea Reinicke they have been producing theatre, music and video performances since 1999.
Since their existence, the group has been concerned with themes regarding origin, homelessness, cultural attributes, escape and political discrimination.
HAJUSOM! perceives itself as an artistic statement that tries to intervene in the field of conflict the current migration policy has brought about.
