Colony – escape stories – PREMIER, Trafo Hungary

STEREO AKT invites you to a theatre walk in the former tobacco factory building on Kőbányai road, where you will explore the site’s little-known past with a team of actors, singers and migrant participants.

We will be joined by Irini and Perisztera, whose family, fleeing the civil war, found refuge in the closed world of the Greek colony on Kőbánya Road. Also joins us Abouzar and his son Armin, the last witnesses to the world of the transit zones on the southern border in Hungary. Stories of refugees in radically different historical and political contexts, only the host country is the same in both cases: Hungary in the late 1940s and today.
