Excerpts from the play:
It can easily be summarized: Two states approve of a mega project from which they can both profit. Both states share the same political ideology and brilliantly complete each other’s needs. This is how good partnerships work!
Politicians love megaprojects and the people have to live with the consequences. The scars of those consequences – these are called identity!
Short film sequences from the German Broadcasting Archive show Erich Honecker during a visit to Mozambique (Mozambicans euphorically wave GDR flags) with Samora Machel, upon the signing of the contracts in 1979, as well as the inauguration of the School of Friendship in Staßfurt.
