This is also a refugee
How does one become a successful refugee? A displaced child often has to balance personal needs against a responsibility for managing their family’s often dramatic history. After Nhu Diep and Pedro Carmona-Alvarez came to Norway as children from Vietnam and Chile respectively, they have been squeezed between these demands – but have also exploited the power inherent in them to create art and literature.
How can you be yourself when straddling two languages and two cultures? Carmona-Alvarez writes about this experience in his latest work, Refrenger, while Diep is working on a book on the same subject. They meet for a conversation with Eivind Riise Hauge.
