Special fundraising performance for the benefit of BXLRefugees.

Why is the question “Where are you from?” less harmless than it seems? What defensive reflex hides behind this ordinary question? What are the differences and similarities between yesterday’s migrations and today’s? What commonalities do the ancient and the current migrants share? Are those migrations comparable? Does having been an immigrant oneself inoculate one against tribalism?

To delve deeply into these questions which bring into focus all the issues of the debate on identity and origins, Hervé Guerrisi and Grégory Carnoli, actors and grandchildren of migrants pull together stories and testimonials to run them through the strainer of science. The result is an innovative type of theatre, between documentary theatre, scathing, biting lecture, and place for defiance. It’s an invitation to travel through family histories and those of the migratory flows… to find our common ancestor, that cell that we all descend from since all living species come from it: L.U.C.A.
