The Nonexistent

In exile … you have no existence.

“Strange being here
Having traveled 
so far
To escape a wall
And finding myself locked up
Exactly in the same position
As if the Earth was nothing more than a huge prison.” 

A young girl tells her story to the walls locking her away
Boring a hole into prejudices with words
And building a path to dignity
Intertwining epic accounts and acrobatic feats
The production powerfully and boldly recounts a modern-day tragedy,
That of migrant children fighting
To carve out a place for themselves in the sun.
