How to create a memory without saying the words that cannot be said?

Naxos plays with a story of princesses and labyrinths to tell the story of people who have no legends, of a mixed-origin memory lost in unplaced oral transmissions, in the diaspora, in the shame of migration, in the appropriation by one side or the other, in the celebratory narrative of an industrial future.

Our dispossession refers to the losing of a single war in a number of acts: the Civil War against the poor, the cultural war against memory and reparation, and the war, today, of these same powers that be against the people in resistance, who fight for justice, including climate justice, in the lands of our absence.

Who’s afraid of an immigrant memory?
