Longing, or Exile at Home
  • Brighton Fringe

An Arab, a Jew, and a new immigrant take a voyage into memory, dramatising their personal stories. The daughter who returned to Berlin in her fathers footsteps, and now longs to go back to Israel, to where her father emigrated to save himself from the Holocaust. The Arab-Israeli uncle who chose to return to his native village, from where he was displaced in the 1948 war, and work his ancestors' land as a hired hand. They meet Telenovella, who dreams of love, without nationality. Exile is not only a political fate - it can be a state of mind, a cultural and inner exile, imposed or chosen.
