Workshop on performing identity

thursday january 12
OT, Rotterdam, Netherlands

52 Rotterdam students of the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam who will be the crew for the project ‘The Language Police’, took part in a workshop on performing identity. With guest actor Jamal Boukhriss who perfomed his monologue ‘alone against the world’, and hosted by theatercompany Onafhankelijk Toneel the workshop offered strategies for exploring one’s alter ego’s and possible selves. The result of the workshop is a series of videoportraits in which the students present ‘who they are’. These introductions will be shown in Witte de With, from 26 januari onwards, and mark the start of the process of investigating usage and alternatives for te word ‘allochtoon’. Images of this workshop can be viewed in the image repository.
