Erni has been traveling with a group artists and sailors from different countries in the world, on the century- old wooden boats, Berthed at various islands and port cities between the Baltic and Mediterranean Seas, travelling to numerous cities, towns and ports.
However, our world is full of emerging crisis at present, refugee crisis, Climate changes… among the rolling waves of the sea, they are heading for the rediscovery of homeland, the hope of human kind.
Erni, as the only chinese girl on board together with theatre artists from around the world sailing on a 100 year old wooden boat. A journey inspired by Odyssey, they sailed three years from baltic sea to Mediterranean sea towards Ithaca, home of Odysseus. On the way they visited dozens of cities and islands, collecting story and creating performance with people from European citizens to new arrival refugees.
Dozens of wild and passionate stories that I meet along my adventure when I was 20s around the planet: bullfighter, Oscar nominated nomad film director, theatre maniac, forest hunter, monk, drunk sailor, organic farmer… They are strangers of this mainstream world. It’s about being alive, it’s about about other ways of living.
