Refugees’ struggle to survive that takes place right in front of our eyes is brought to stage by Genco Erkal from Matei Visniec’s realist play with sporadically absurd touches. The play will be staged in documentary theatre style, which Genco Erkal frequently tackles as a genre, and will be an immersive experience for the audience with its production, set design and overall statement. Migraaaants takes a picture of the situation as it scrutinizes every aspect of this bleeding wound of the planet and says “Our countries are dying. There’s nothing left to do when a country starts to die”.
