I Want a Country

“We need to dream, otherwise we’ll just die sleepless.”

I Want a Country, written a decade ago during Greece’s severe debt crisis, is an interdisciplinary theatrical performance that explores what is at stake when a country is not safe anymore. Greek writer Andreas Flourakis imagines a chorus of young people planning to escape into their own dream countries. Will their desires come true?
