“Who is the enemy?” is a moving paper-theater performance based on refugees’ real stories and original drawings.

It was created by Erica Zoltan Sapir of Puppeteers Without Borders, with funding by Susila Dharma Germany.

Erica spent several weeks in early 2016 visiting the Paulusheim Refugee Centre in Bonn, Germany where she worked with the people there to express their experiences creatively through drawing and story telling. Erica took this material to create this paper-theatre show which was performed five times in Bonn in mid-November 2016.
