this is a meeting point across times, an end of a lonely travel, a story we share. Now we invite you to see, to hear, to feel, to be, to move in chaos or in silence, to walk deep down, in lost corridors underneath bunkers and houses. You will be visiting places that you have visited before. This journey is not new. This journey is just forgotten.
Cycle is a scenic walk that invites the audience to revisit war memories in collective spaces. The three theater makers with different roots coming from different cities (Beirut, Brussels, Barcelona), have been doing research on the effect of violence in the collective imaginary and its impact on the present and future generations. They wonder how to renew perception.
