CYPRUS WEEK: 20 July
by Lorna Eleonora Vassiliades
Directed by Pedro Perez Rothstein
What do you take with you when suddenly you have to leave your home?
On the anniversary of the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus, performance Artist Lorna Eleonora Vassiliades creates a ritual of grief and mnemonic resistance through the suitcase and items her family grabbed when they were forced to flee from their home in Famagusta.
Everyone with experience and/or a heritage of forced displacement is invited to bring an item with them.
We will end dancing a Greek circle dance together as a symbol of unity.
Estimated running time: 60 minutes
Lorna Eleonora Vassiliades is a journalist-author turned performer and PhD researcher investigating solo performance and the heritage of displacement at Queen Mary University of London.
