Boom! Bang bang! Wow! Prepare to be drawn into a whirlwind of booming monologues, shimmering costumes and theatrical gestures.

In CATCH (Coalition Against Type Casting Horror), Aminata Demba and Aïcha Cissé enter the ring for the fight of their lives. In this space which is theirs for a few moments, they try to free themselves, as actresses and black women, from the multiple constraints imposed on them.

In a production by Frédérique Lecomte, with whom they have already worked for Dis-moi wie ik ben, the show with which they made their breakthrough, they now tackle characters and scenes from the history of theater and popular culture. With lightness, they turn themes like repertoire, representation and models to follow upside down.

Demba and Cissé roll machines and join forces to break away from dominant mechanisms and modes of thought, within the framework of the performing arts and outside.

The duo convinces us in Coalition Against Type Casting Horror (CATCH) to accompany them in their experiences. An exercise in which they relentlessly highlight important issues, in a bittersweet show that overflows with the pleasure of performing.
