Bu, Suriyeli oyun yazarı Mohammad Al Attar’ın yazdığı bir deneme. Bu, Türkiyeli birinin bu metin üzerine yaptıkları bir müzakere ve sunum.

‘Suriyeli bir arkadaşım bana dedi ki vatan denen kısıtlayıcı fikirden kurtulmuş hissediyorum. Dünyayı gezmek istediğini, hiçbir zaman gerçekleşemeyecek arzulanan vatan fikrinin tutsağı olmaktan yorulduğunu söyledi. Bu cümlenin farklı varyasyonlarını buradaki başka Suriyeli arkadaşlarımdan da duydum. Şüphesiz buna inanmak büyük cesaret istiyor, ancak arkadaşlarımın hepsi vatan fikrinden ve yabancılaşma ve sürgün illüzyonundan kurtulmaktan bahsederken gözlerime bakmaktan kaçınıyorlardı.’

This is an essay Syrian playwright Mohammad Al Attar wrote. It is a meditation and a performative delivery of the text by a Turkish performer.

‘A Syrian friend tells me that he has become liberated from the restricting idea of homeland. He wants to roam the world, he became tired with being captive to a desired homeland that will never be. I heard different variations on this sentence from other Syrian friends here in Berlin. No doubt, it takes courage to believe so, but they all avoided looking into my eyes while talking about being liberated from the idea of homeland and the illusions of alienation and exile.’
