“There’s so much to celebrate about the
Somali culture, but we feel we are being judged and criminalised. We need to speak out and let people know, FGM doesn’t define who we are. Things are different now, we need people to stop judging us and see who we really are.”
“Judging Without Knowing is a show that takes the well argumented FGM narrative on its head. For too long the focus has been on how barbaric the procedure is and that the communities involved cannot help themselves unless there’s awareness and punitive consequences for those who practice it. For many in the community this “white saviour” approach endorsed by a handful of disconnected Somali women is patronising and pose more harm than good. The show depicates how the current FGM procedures deeply affects the families they come in contact with. The women in the show offer a snippet of what life is like when you’re constantly suspected of a crime because of your cultural background. The women in the show are adamant to continue their fight against this stigma until the end of these discriminatory guidelines.” – Hibo, Performer
A partnership between acta Theatre and Talo.
The venue is accessible with parking, accessible toilets, lifts and a hearing induction loop. However, there will not be a BSL interpreter at the performances.
Increased demand upon school budgets, at the same time as less funding from central government, means many Disabled children are not getting the support they need and others are being turned down by mainstream schools because the school knows it can’t meet the young person’s education support needs.
