Never ending search for home
About the show:
In this show, Raffi Feghali will explore his relationship with his home, the city of Beirut. A place he loves so much that he promised to never leave it, and now he’s learning to hate it because he can’t live in it for another second.
The show is about home; chosen, forced, in between, both, or other. We are born in a home, if we’re one of the lucky ones. Then we grow, explore, and choose it as our home, or choose another. Many of us, much more than we think or like to believe, have other homes forced on them in very obvious ways. Some of those learn to love their new homes and yet others live between the two. How else are our relationships with our home(s)? There’s a whole world of homes out there.
