“Performing the self – the interview” stages the impossible conversation between a protection officer and an asylum seeker just before the interpreter arrives. An intimate dialogue about credibility and trust, mutual expectations and cultural misunderstandings in the unique juridical frame of the asylum procedure. What might happen before the long-awaited and overload moment of the interview begins?
