The Last Caravansary is the name of a theater play i saw in 2003 a Six hours play, seen in one day with a 90-minute break. A Journey, an odyssey made from tiny pieces of destiny, small parts of the lives of men and women. Those who are called refugees, illegals, migrants, and who call themselves travellers.
The name Caravansary refers to inns that once served as resting stops for caravans
A caravansary was a roadside inn where travelers (Caravaners) could rest and recover from the day's journey.
Extracts from the director's preparatory notes for "The Last Caravansary" in 2003:
The Last Caravansary, is a mixture of memories, tales, listened to, overheard and collected during an investigation, a search, carried out among Afghan, Kurd or Iranian travellers met while they were waiting in Europe.
They fled the "without future". Now they have no ID and they are without definition. One day their history will continue where it was violently cut... so they hope.
"Take my story, tell it, don't let it be a dead unburied one, hoping we have not lived our humble and precious lives without leaving traces or descendance."
