It’s an inner journey the character undertakes to discover who she is and where she belongs in the world. No one chooses to be a refugee. Especially not a child. Milena Buziak

A LITTLE BIT OF HUMANITY TO TAKE HOME
Nour takes us through the perilous crossing that has brought her here, drawn by the promise of a better place to live. She recalls the dangers of the voyage, and most of all the pain of separation: how can she bear to leave Youmna, the deaf woman who loves her like a daughter? The young girl tears herself away, taking nothing with her but a mysterious little box.
On stage, one actress relates in words and another in sign language this touching and disturbing quest that reflects a very current reality. Like Nour, half the world’s migrants are children.
