The work was awarded and presented in the European Dance festival in Pallas theatre in Nicosia.
Wet tomb! Hundreds of people, including babies, babies and their mothers. Hundreds of people, the verb used by the media when they start to narrate the drama: Drowned! Drowned? Is it the sea itself that is responsible for their drama? The weather? Are all these desperate mothers, who are unable to leave off their arms their dead from hypothermia children, thus raising the number of the drowned people lists? Or is it something else? Or are the barriers, the vertical frontiers on land borders, the only real perpetrator? Or is it one who forces the “thousands of persecuted” to their only way to escape, risking their life in the endless sea?
This tear that “dries” at the border, is a tear for culture, for Humanity…
