“FANUN RUIN begins with the meeting with the Timorese skulls in Coimbra. It begins with the Timorese insurgent banished to Angola and the Angolan woman who is banished. It starts with the questions.
What did the faces of those who were cut off look like? Where are the remains of the skulls?
When will the usurped bones return? Who is waiting for them?
Who still remembers? Who wants to forget?
How to embody the bones?
The actress speaks. She puts life into her voice.” (Zia Soares)
