Laila Soliman | Ruud Gielens (Kairo | Antwerpen | Niedersachsen)
My Body Belongs To Me


Arabic, German and English with German and English supertitles

»My Body Belongs To Me« is a dense and direct theatrical work performed in a minimalist stage setting. The performers, originally from the Sudan and Eritrea, are members of a self-organised group that campaigns against FGM (female genital mutilation). In »My Body Belongs To Me«, the activists – mothers, housewives and working women – stand on the stage, sing traditional women’s songs, and tell their very individual life stories with remarkable openness: stories of growing up as women, the mutilation and its consequences, how they came to Germany, and their experiences of support and solidarity – far beyond any clichés.  


Maria Domingos Tembe | Panaibra Gabriel Canda (Maputo)
Solo Für Maria


In English

Maria is the name of the mother of God. The name of countless mothers and daughters. And the name of the dancer on stage. A name, beneath which so many projections of femininity overlap. In SOLO FOR MARIA, Maria Domingos Tembe dances as a woman torn between social expectations and self-assertion. In the first part of this (auto-) biographical choreography, the dancer and actor presents the audience with her movement repertoire and exposes her body to their habitual ways of seeing. The second part, directed by the director and choreographer Panaibra Gabriel Canda, addresses women’s rights and experiences of violence. By not just evading the audience’s gaze, but also by throwing it back at them with great intensity, Tembe produces a form of intimacy that demands reciprocity.
