on est la we zijn hier

 

"On est là / We" zijn here (we are here) uses the medium of visual and physical theatre, clown and interactive and participatory play to explore non verbal and verbal narratives through a universal work

Two very opposite men meet during their way to the beach.

A tender, adventurous and funny meeting confronting their differences in order to bring light on their prejudices, to overcome them and create bridges and better living together.

We are touched by this coming and going of smiles, surprises and emotions

This Belgian South African Group explores notions relate to the topic and challenges stereotypes, prompting harmful cliches by creating a new dialogue celebrating diversity.

Key words of this dynamic and sparking piece: inclusion, against racism, differences between north and south cultures and understanding.
