STORYTELLING: Gilgamesh and the quest for immortality
After several meetings and workshop interventions in different Refugee centers and meeting points in Belgrade and beyond, lead by Members of Zoukak Theatre Company from Lebanon. CZKD and Zoukak invites you to join the public encounter “The flood, Gilgamesh and the quest of immortality”.
A story building theatrical encounter that opens a shared space of reflecting around the paths of displacement from the history and contemporary times. Stories from the public, residents and passerby refugees will be shared.
The encounter is guided by the epic of Gilgamesh (He Who Saw Everything), where the journey of Gilgamesh and the contemporary “immigrants/refugees” correlates: a quest for the immortal life/a quest for a life of dignity, crossing the river of death/crossing the sea of death.
