See you, Rafiq-e-man! is a documentary performance about refugee children.

He is 11 years old. He arrived in Denmark 5 years ago. A war started where he lived. He had to escape to survive. He reached Denmark. He lived at the asylum center for 5 years. It was here he meet Rafiq-e-man.
Now Rafiq is gone too. They sent him back and nobody has heard from him since.
Before Rafiq left he swore he would come back to him. It is a long time ago now...
But maybe....maybe today will be the day Rafiq returns?
