  • Kolektiva Balkans @ Michael Cacoyannis Foundation
The artistic group Kolektiva Balkana is staging the performance Don’t Forget to Go Home, at the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation, until June 7. The performance is based on the Greek folk song Of the Dead Brother [in Greek], similar versions of which are found all around the Balkans region. The current story takes place in Yugoslavia, in 1995, where Milica is rescued and is sent Greece by her brother, Jovan, who after some time relocates to Germany. Twenty years later, a tragic event will bring them back to the home that they grew up in and time begins to turn backwards, bringing to the surface what has been buried by time and distance.
