Millionen! Millionen! Millionen!

“Be embraced, you millions” is the complete line of Schiller’s “Ode to Joy”. Millions of questions form the starting point for this creative collision between teens whose families all migrated to the Ruhr region at different times, and current teen asylum seekers all fleeing from the world's tremendous chaos. Mammalian and the teens will meet and work together this summer in locations across the Ruhr to create Millionen! Millionen! Millionen!: one massive, open-ended blind date dedicated, at very least, to answering the question: who are Schiller's "millions" and how can we ensure a loving embrace?
