Roger Benjamin and Benjamin Rye are the two migrants featured in the transmedia project "Rageen Vol. 1" by the Okiees collective. It's a fusion of live music and images, performance and reading, poetry and storytelling, that tells the story of love/hate between the two protagonists, migrants fleeing war who seek a new destination, Catania. Roger and his traveling companion face an introspective journey into the dark sides of man, a declination of the figure of the "hostis", which is the Other than Self, the stranger who lives in us. "Rageen Vol. 1" features the extraordinary participation of artist Pippo Delbono.
