The young man in the photo is Chico, a young refugee, on the day of the performance “Untitled for now: an old fable” at the National Opera House, in which he took part. Chico, an extremely ambitious child who has already been integrated into our society, has received a negative decision to be granted international protection and his life is in serious danger if he is taken back to his country. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, he experienced a dramatic childhood. At the age of 10, his entire family was slaughtered by soldiers. He himself, who happened to be away from home, escaped the massacre but was of course forced to flee his country, as he was himself a target.
