Lenght: 75 minutes
Samenloop van Omstandigheden offers a perspective on the world from ‘the other side of the fence’. In the performance you will meet Saman Amini as a theatre maker, actor and musician. In the performance, Amini talks, sings and raps about his youth, his love, his parents and everything that is needed to stay upright when nothing is certain anymore. From the perspective of a boy who knows both sides of the fence like the palms of his hands, he talks about hope and poverty, fighting spirit and injustice, resilience and inequality.
With his penetrating and human questions, Saman Amini comes close to the spectator. The performance has an undertone of resignation and calm determination. Amini celebrates life (and surviving) and appeals all the senses to reinforce his story.
The show was one of the big hits of the Oerol Festival 2018
