Where To Belong

Written and performed by Victor Esses

What makes a home? What does belonging mean to you? Can we ever learn from personal and universal history?

In January 2017, Victor visited his parents’ homeland of Lebanon for the first time – the country his mother fled as a refugee of the civil war in 1975. In Where to Belong, he recounts this journey. In navigating through his and his family’s history via the different points of his identity as a Jewish Lebanese Brazilian gay man, he assembles a tender moving hour of storytelling, multimedia, and future planning.

An hour for us all to feel hopeful, challenged and transformed.
