DynamO Théâtre is again exploring the complex issue of exile. In this instance the project examines population displacement and the horrible conditions that force humans to flee and leave everything to survive. The Nonexistent focuses on borders keeping people apart, wiping out identities, on borders that protect us, that generate conflicts, that people need to cross and those brought down to reach others. Three performers and a cellist have audiences experience the harrowing story of a young girl forced to take to roads interrupted by borders in search of a better life.
