Black Woman's Word

Black Woman’s Word is a biographical itinerary and at the same time a collective itinerary on discrimination and how racial identities are constructed.

Spoken-word is the main dish combined with anecdotes, audiovisuals, dance and singing/rap.

Black woman’s Word is an interactive, fresh, emotional, challenging play with a touch of humour, which won’t leave you indifferent

Maisa is a Dutch black woman and the daughter of parents, who are each from two different countries and continents(Maurituis and Suriname) with ancestors from other continents. The red thread of the monologue is the fact she is from so many different countries and at the same time from none. Through a range of nuances, she shares her personal experiences of being a black woman, identity self-perception,self-acceptance, sexuality, of immigration and of racism.
