PREMIERED 2020, retake 2022
In the performance BEIGE you follow a young woman’s search for her roots.
What should she give to her future child?
What does she really know about her origins and history?
Why does she not know the meaning of the Surinamese beads?
And what does that stone in her grandmother’s bathroom mean? She becomes entangled in expectations, pressures and disappointments, dreams a world away from these pressures, until eventually everything comes together.
