How Am I Here

Years after leaving their homeland, many Syrians experience restless feelings about homecoming, wondering if it is the expected desire or another nightmare. Mey Seifan reflects on these feelings in her transmedial performance, How am I here?

Trapped in the vacuum between nightmarish homecoming and the oppressive reality of exile, the performance employs VR technology, AI, and choreographed enactment of the dreams to reflect an emotionally charged experience. How am I here? offers insights into the archived dreams that inspired the performance, as they were written and told. It includes personal comments, tutorials on lucid dreams and using the arts to communicate trauma; along with an audio-dream journey performed by singer Shadi Ali.
