L’initiatrice - The initiator

First performed at the Théâtre Le Public on 9 September 2009 under the direction of Guy Theunissen. Cast: Babetida Sadjo and Patricia Ide. Nowadays, in the world that we will pass on to our heirs, a white woman discovers a black woman squatting in an empty flat to which she has the keys. She is the daughter of Nura, her one-time cleaning lady. Nura was imprisoned for carrying out female genital mutilation. She served her sentence and went back home. The white lady has never had an opportunity to speak to Nura, to tell her she did not inform on her and does not know how she came to be arrested.
