Feridun Zaimoglu, known for his legendary reports Kanak Sprak and Koppstoff, has now completed field research in another social milieu. Female "neo-Muslims", young German girls brought up in traditional or liberally secular families, explain their motives for professing their belief in an orthodox Islamic faith. Zaimoglu has translated the interview transcripts into his own artificial language to create new Koppstoff monologues for the stage.
