Athina 118 54
a feminist performance by Monica Jahan Bose in collaboration with the people of Athens
This special interactive performance will include refugee and immigrant women and connect them with other residents of Athens. The performance asks the question: what is home and how do we find new homes and rebuild our lives? The performance will include writing personal reflections on “home” on the glass windows in multiple languages; sewing together saris that contain the stories and writing of people in Athens, Paris, Bangladesh, and the US; and carrying the saris outside the gallery. All ages and genders welcome. This is a woman-centered performance and men are welcome to join and follow, but not lead. Photography of the performance is prohibited except by authorized photographers.
