In this one-man performance, author and journalist Hayko Bagdat tells the stories from his first book " Salyangoz (Snail)" drawn from his childhood and later years. Performed in Turkish - no subtitles.

His storytelling, mellow in some parts and sorrowful in others is a powerful two hour show. Bagdat presents these tales as if he is regaling them to a friend over a dinner table, the style of which has made his one-man show a roaring success.

Hayko Bagdat is a half Greek and half Armenian journalist and author for whom the state of Turkey recently issued an arrest warrant due to his political opinions. He continues on his socialist path for democratisation of his country and is active against the swelling tide of fascism and racism worldwide. Presently he is living in exile in Germany.
