I attended both workshops this week and it was emotional and intense. The second workshop was more relaxed (group 2 workshop).

I was invited to give 10 minutes long talk in each workshop and I talked about my own experiences of being a refugee.

This year, both topics HOME for the individual project and refugees, homeless and displacement for the group project are very close and sentimental to me.

I’m thinking about creating a performance piece to raise awareness about these issues.
My idea is portraying the loss, the chaos, the pain, the crisis within the body when someone becomes a refugee or asylum seeker.

Identity crisis, alone, still standing but lost.
I am attending workshops on the side to gain knowledge about how to get jobs as an artist.
