Kamyon

Michael De Cock / KVS

Wooden benches are placed in the back of a truck. This is the simple arena for Kamyon. A little girl tells how she and her mother travelled across Europe in a truck like this, fleeing the madness, looking for a safe home, a better life.
 
Like so many thousands of migrants, Kamyon will journey across Europe. In each country a new actress will speak. Following the premiere in Istanbul, the performance was staged in Belgium, Slovenia, France, Czech Republic, Italy, Hungary and England.
