Finding a Loving Motherland:

Chicago, USA - Collaboraction's Peacebook - 2017

Performed by: Sophia Pietrkowski, Izzy Tortuga, Margo Chervony & Maddie Delk.

Devised & Directed by: Sami Ismat

 

This theatrical piece explores through instrumental sound, movement, props, and a monologue the tragedy of what a Syrian family who lost everything has to face and the cultural shock of coming to America (USA) as a refugee where things don't feel right.

 

This production was loosely based on the real tragedy of a Syrian family who are refugees in Chicago that the artist met in 2017 upon moving to the US himself.
