What is it to be a citizen? To “belong” to a land e only have the right to exercise your citizenship there? Where is “my” land? And “yours”, where is it? Who or what has the power to define where someone’s land is? Is it possible to locate the beginning of any story?

Volta para a Tua Terrra (Go back to where you came from) is a project created by Keli Freitas, a brazilian playwright, director and actress living in Portugal, in which, on the search for her portuguese great-grandmother, she questions the ideas of immigration and belongingness.
