Miriam Selima Hay, an actress of the company, reconstructs the traces of her Libyan origins. During her research through social networks, she met Salem a Libyan cousin whose existence he did not know, the Iraqi Haidar, a former professor of English at the University of Tripoli and Khalifa Abo Khraisse, a journalist, documentary filmmaker and Tripoli correspondent for Internazionale and other newspapers, for which he reported the country’s political conflicts. Can a personal story be traced back to a collective memory? Can an autobiographical narrative become a public ritual?
