What makes a home for you?

Victor Esses is Jewish-Lebanese, Brazilian, and gay. In 1975, Victor's mother flees Lebanon as a refugee of the Civil War. In 2017, Victor visits Lebanon for the first time. In 2018, amidst the elections that will see Brazil choose a far-right president, he travels from London to S o Paulo to show his partner the city of his childhood.

Where to Belong is the tender, moving story of these journeys - an exploration of how to find your place in a rich and complex world of identities.

He is Associate Artist to CASA Theatre Festival, has been nominated for an International Press Award, and has been associate director to maverick international director Gerald Thomas.
