I was displaced from my hometown, and lately I have been noticing a large hole between two different societies. Also I have been trying to cope with all the new information I receive everyday, and the lifestyle changes that I go through on a regular basis.
Adapting to isolation have become a way of living, and the pandemic increased that significantly.
My project aims to shape these kinds of perspectives where I focus on the of refugees between the walls in a foregin place. how much can a person handle loneliness? Can we avoid feeling lonely?
in this residency i'm going to work on a text that maybe can shape the idea of "loneliness" into the characters that are struggling with time. The time that stopped in a certain moment and never seemed to progress.
