Do we still look at the Other through colonial eyes? And what does the Other think of that? Can a bridge be built between cultures, without this ending in misunderstanding or cultural appropriation? Where does curiosity end and exoticism begin? Doesn't political correctness get in the way of mutual discussion too much? And what is actually the use of fifty types of mediocre humus on the shelves of Albert Heijn?
During the rehearsal process, both the Mauritanian writer Mohammedou Ould Slahi and the Dutch writer Rik van den Bos are present in the rehearsal room. And the actors and dancers also come from different cultures from East and West. This creates an interdisciplinary dialogue in which different perspectives discuss, collide and merge. And which asks the viewer the question: with what view do you look at the Other and his place in the world?
