MOI, MONSIEUR, MOI ! (with English SURTITLES) • Created and performed by Patricia Gomis (Dakar, Senegal) • A co-presentation with L’UniThéâtre • February 7th to 11th, 2017 at 8PM • Saturday Matinee on February 11th, at 1:30PM
MOI, MONSIEUR, MOI ! is the story of a female child born in Senegal who, like many others, was passed on to an aunt, a cousin, an uncle… It is also the story, sometimes comical, of all the ones who, ill-treated and brutalized, keep their heads up to find their place in society. Maliciously using clowns’ and puppets’ weapons, the actor plays out, not without humour, the hardships of being born a girl and becoming a woman.
