Strange is the New Home

By Zeina Azouqah & Yazan Mesmar


Many feel displaced and unfamiliar in their own homes and cities due to the lockdown situation in many parts of the globe. We are faced with the challenge of redefining our routines and our day to day life, while at the same time feeling the pressure and guilt created by ourselves and social media for slowing down our usual pace, creating this additional stress to the already stressful situation.
With this work we wanted to combine our different backgrounds and life experiences and create a production that allows the viewer to relax, and lose track of time during these strange days.
