This Archive is A Dreeeeeam!
Come and go, enter and leave; always an island, always must leave. Go and come, enter and leave, always this island, never can leave. Home. Returning home, remembering home, rejecting home, recreating home. Themes that come in cycles and waves.
Can narrative storytelling translate research?
Can fragments, fictions, dreams, snippets, colours, characters, repetitions and sounds work as an archive, conjuring a memory from this place called home?
The work is based on a collection of interviews from a week in Polystipos, a village in Cyprus, focusing on the period of British colonial rule on the Island.
