Failing Exercise in Living

The project is a text that attempts to rewrite a chapter of the life of two young Syrian men, who seek to cope with life’s circumstances between Damascus and Istanbul. Marwan and Kifah represent Syrian youth today, who left their country in the hope of a better life somewhere else, only to find that the burden continues to follow them wherever they go. The project also addresses the notion of balance between the one who exited for lack of other solutions, and the one who exited out of desire for self-improvement.
