Action Zoo Humain & Theater Antigone
She always says
Mummy I only feel half
And I say to her
You are not half
You are double
You are more than me
Métisse is a tragi-comic, musical production about the existential question of ‘half-blood children’ since the 1960s, who as illegitimate citizens were faced with social exclusion – both in Europe and in Sub-Saharan Africa. The perspectives of three generations of women, each with darker skin than the last, coalesce and reveal a piece of the hidden past and present.
• Action Zoo Humain is the theatre company led by Chokri Ben Chikha, and strives to bring intercultural questions to the fore of public debate. The company will be in residence at NTGent until 2021. Theater Antigone is a production company from Kortrijk. It is home to a variety of performing artists, authors, performers, musicians, visual artists and social-artistic workers.
‘The year is only one month old, and makers and performers of colour are in the spotlights everywhere. It is impressive how Patricia Kargbo renders the intensity of her inner world without ever actually speaking.' – DE STANDAARD
