What makes a home? What does belonging mean to you? Can we ever learn from personal and universal history?
Victor Esses is a theatre maker and performer who creates interactive, devised live art performances that explore belonging, the collective and our times. In January 2017 Victor visited his parents’ homeland of Lebanon for the first time, where his mother fled as a refugee of the civil war in 1975. In Where to Belong, he recounts his journey, navigating through his and his family’s history to different points of his identity as a Jewish Lebanese Brazilian gay man, he assembles a tender moving hour of storytelling, multimedia and planning for the future.
An hour for us all to feel hopeful, challenged, and transformed. Are you willing to make your world a better place?
