When I grow up I want to be sexualised, objectified, made to feel wrong, ignored, used, abused and belittled. I want to be defined by the colour of my skin, the size of my tits or the use of a tampon, my hair, my muscles and what I’m packing in my toolbox. I want to be looked at and touched without asking, I want to be made to feel uncomfortable just for saying no, I want to be expected to be something I’m not, expected to change for you, expected to go with the flow and let it happen
without speaking up.
ENCOUNTERING THE OTHER is a passionate, riotous and often hilarious examination of just what womanhood in 2017 means. A collection of voices, stories and experiences of young women and men living across two hemispheres. Brought together through a fusion of music, dance, comedy, colour and the internet, as they try and make sense of themselves, each other and a world where everything often feels upside down and back to front.
A collectively created production performed by young people from South Africa and the North East England, it is the culmination of an exciting new international collaboration between two dynamic theatre companies from across the world, The Market Theatre Laboratory, Johannesburg and Darlington based new-writing theatre company, ODDMANOUT.
