Camp Europe. Photo by Entropia Camp Europe: Migration Stories in Movement and Sound Marilli Mastrantoni, Director of Entropia Theater (Greece) brought us moving images and reflections from Camp Europe, a project she has been working on with Artistic Director of Açık Stüdyo Şafak Ersözlü. Following Marilli's residency in Izmir, Şafak now offers his own account of this moving project exploring migration stories through movement, sound and more. Camp Europe. Photo by Entropia We met with Marilli Mastrantoni, the artistic director of Entropia Ensemble at the end of the Tandem Network Meeting in Berlin in 2016. Just after breakfast, we had a nice conversation about the situations in Turkey and Greece over a cup of coffee. She shared her idea about her new project Camp Europe, a devised theatre work through collaborations with different artist initiatives, about migration. I told her that I am a potential immigrant now and that I have migration stories in my family too. I said that I would like to take part in this project as an artist and artistic director of Acik Studio, the performance research centre based in Izmir. She too would like to collaborate with me. After a while we started to communicate via e-mails. We developed the necessary conditions for the Izmir residency in collaboration with Melih Ergen, cultural manager of Teos Arts and Culture Association. Camp Europe.

From Entropia’s side performers included Tsambika Fesaki and Vasiliki Georgikopoulou. Marilli was the director of the work. I proposed one solo with my real family stories about migration. I made interviews with my mother and my father about our family stories. Sarp Keskiner composed them and created a four minutes piece. After that I composed a movement improvisation with that sound installation. I also proposed a trio with two performers from Entropia crew, Tsambika Fesaki and Vasiliki Georgikopoulou about migration stories from each of us based on movement and text as well. Camp Europe.

Give us peace.” Filiz Izem Yasin photographed and videographed the whole process and composed the promo video of the Izmir residency. Her one video is also used in the performance. Camp Europe. Photo by Entropia We stayed two weeks and made rehearsals in Teos Writers House, the base of Teos Culture and Arts Association and performed a work in progress performance composed from the developed chapters in Izmir and the previous residencies in Berlin and Budapest, in Seferihisar Children Municipality Stage as an output of the Izmir residency. We developed the work more and more in Athens altogether with the whole Entropia crew and guest artists from previous residencies and composed the work for finalisation and made seven performances one after another. It was a beatiful work which I could put my own experience within. It was personal and politic by my side.
