WAR - REFUGEE WAVES - MIGRATION
From Trabzon to Thessaloniki, 1912-1946, one journey, 12 stops.
A contemporary history of humanity. Being relocated. Being a refugee. It happened then. It is happening now. It will happen again, tomorrow. A family affair that has proved to be universal and timeless. Civilized Europe and the war-torn East were the reasons for Antigone Mavrommatopoulou’s life story to become a theatrical monologue, so that a story may be revived that exceeds personal experience and becomes reality for entire peoples, for every “Antigone”.
Using archive material from that era as set and backdrop, processed in such a way as to highlight the circular nature of history, past and present become one, so that we may be reminded that it is not history making fools of us, rather we make fools of ourselves for never learning from it. Our intention is that Antigone’s Narration transmit to us the feeling that being torn from ones land is a heritage we all share.
