Who are these people? They may be without papers, but not without paper. Oh have they got paper! Official papers, letters, authorizations, passports, … But who are these people? They could be the survivors from a lost civilization, our civilization, from which would remain only a paper trail, papers and letters that have no more meaning, or get new meanings. They come from Luxembourg, Syria, France, Canada, Portugal, Palestine, Iraq, Cape Verde, Italy. But what does that mean, when a passport has become merely a piece of paper?
Refugees & performers from Luxembourg come together in this creation by Sylvia Camarda and Serge Tonnar, based on letters that the refugees wrote from Luxembourg: real or imagined messages, letters home, love letters, even excerpts from official letters from immigration lawyers. These letters from Luxembourg contain humour and sadness, homesickness and hope. Paper is the support for these letters, and this people of the paper, these refugees of today, are the ancestors of the new Luxembourgers in 100 years. There will no longer be any differences. The people from « Letters from Luxembourg » show already today what that means. They are the people of the new Luxembourg.
