BE.BOP 2016 Performance: "Perception Gap, monologue." by Patrice Naiambana, German premiere.


InfoFestival Ticket: 25 € / 15 € / Day Ticket: 10 € / 6 € / Single Event: 6 € / 4 €


This solo-digital performance explores the psychological pressures that the African immigrant-outsider experiences. The biggest fear is that of being swallowed by the perception gap, created by the different ways of seeing between insider and outsider. Skewered between the expectations from back home and the challenges of conformity in his new country, our traveller is confronted with difficult questions: “Who am I? What do I stand for?” There is a peril in the un-becoming of being a ‘here and there’ person. Will he survive by putting flesh on silences?


Q & A moderated by Rolando Vázquez
