NOMAD (work in progress)

June 8, 20:00 - 21:30

"One evening when I was a little girl, I was sitting on the beach with my father. The sea was as dark as the sky. Suddenly a drop of light appeared on the horizon. It didn't come from boats and didn't move. Right across from to us was another country, like a fairyland with lights shining in the middle of the sea. Immediately I asked my father where the lights came from.''It's another country. It's Greece, my little girl,'' my father replied. Me was shocked! Until then I thought the sea was the end and there was no other land... I told him with excitement: "I want to go there dad, it's so close!!! His answer was bitter: "You can't go there whenever you want, Ayşe". 

NOMAD is a physical theater performance based on the life of Ayşe, an immigrant in Europe. Through movement, comedy and tragedy, we explore the experience through the eyes of three characters: Ayşe - the heroine and the two institutional monsters: Eric (policeman and immigration officer) and the paper creature (an absurd embodiment of bureaucracy). 

NOMAD is a show about an immigrant in Europe and her quest for legal status.
