Moving places, detaching from your roots, getting away. Emigrating in search of better conditions is a process of existential evolution. A constant process of uprooting and resettling. A transition.
Transition is not linear, neither it has one direction. It consists of various elements and is a mixture of experiences. ιντεκάλ انتقال is a solo piece influenced by my origins, Greece and Syria. It is inspired from the story of a man – my father – who transitioned from one place to another in the lates 80’s. The piece is built upon the narration of Georges Roumié describing his relationship with his country of birth, Syria, and his current home, Greece.
