For those who had left and those who are struggling is a long-term performance project through which Leman S. Darıcıoğlu will be performing every month for 3 days until they do not feel the necessity to do it anymore. It is always going to be shown online even if in the near futures, as Darıcıoğlu hope, there will be the opportunity to perform live again in front of an audience.

Finding its ground from COVID-19 and its circumstances For those who had left and whose who are struggling is an invitation to remember all the souls who have passed away, to mourn, and to send strength to all the ones who are struggling in their homes, in hospitals, in prisons, in refugee camps and to come together with everyone who is stuck in homes or in a room.
