The Play document a play performed by the theahergroup Dental. The Actors is a interview with the actors about their work in the theatre. The Improvisation, which takes place in a vegetable garden, is an improvisation of a dramatic story of the fight between two factions over water from a well.
The women use the theatre as a means of conveying traditions and as a platform for discussing and negotiating potential change. The recordings are from 2011 and 2012 and are only now in cooperation with Saidou Ndiaye realized in a filmprojekt.
Saidou Ndiaye is a playwriht and foundering member of the Kàddu Yaraax theatre group in Dakar.
I have made a number of films in collaboration with Gambian musician Amadou Sarr, in which he presents various members of his family and their stories. The footage of the women was shot as part of this collaboration.
At the show „I slipped into my first metamorphosis so quietly that no one noticed“ at Den Frie in Copenhagen the work was shown as a double projection together with the work „Stage-curtain“.
