  Hussein, Reza, Khalil, Aidim, Reza and Ramzan have arrived to Athens from far away. They are the Persians! Their new station is Athens. How was their journey? What are their everyday battles on a new ground? A documentary theatre performance using as a starting point their personal testimonies and recent events that changed their lives, in a discourse with the Persians of Aeschylus. Images maintained in our collective memory come alive in this personal odyssey where 6 stories intertwine. The Station Athens Group was created through a 5-year theatre workshop. The group, 6 refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh present a performance that taps into today's major issue of migration.
