TELL ME WIE IK BEN

Aïcha Cissé and Aminata Demba offer us a refreshing show in which they play with stereotypes linked to migration. In the background, they tell us about racism and sexism. The two Antwerp actresses, whose parents come from Mali and Senegal respectively, mix facts and fictions to tell the story of their parents and, in the process, their own story. Tell me wie ik ben is a self-portrait of those we call “the second generation”. Through a series of funny and dynamic sketches, they show us what it is to grow up at the intersection of different cultures and claim their plural identity.
