Synopsis

The theatre festival Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) has programmed 'Moria', a theatrical immersive proposal by the theatre company from the Canary Islands Unahoramenos.

 

This immersive theatre proposal tells the story of two refugee women and their families, who have no choice but to flee their respective countries. The dramaturgy is based on real testimonies filmed in the Moria camp under the supervision of Nicolás Castellano, a reporter who has specialized during the last 20 years in forced migration movements and human rights.

 

Zohra Amiryar survived four bombings and attacks in Afghanistan, her home country. She lost her brother during one of them. In addition, she saw her four children wounded during the last attack. Thus she decided to make the exodus in search of a refuge for her family. 

 

Douaa Alhavatem is a 30-year-old Iraqi woman who had to leave her native Baghdad after her husband's disappearance. She feared that she and her three children might suffer the same fate. On the journey, she and her young children gave up everything after 11 hours at sea with no sign of a rescue boat. 

 

In Moria, both women experience a new stage of suffering that they would have never ever imagined when they set foot in Europe, the place where they thought they would finally feel safe. 

 

They share this common space with countless strangers. All of them are going through the worst moment of their lives.
