The narrow margins of understanding and acceptance

Giovanni gives an insight into the world of caravan dwellers that often remains closed to outsiders. He goes on a quest for his roots that is full of judgments and prejudices and experiences the narrow margins of understanding and acceptance.

When my grandmother dreams, she dreams about the future. When I dream, I dream about the past. We both dream of something we don't know about. Day by day we learn more about our future and our past. We find out that neither our past nor our future is comforting. And yet we keep dreaming.

Giovanni Brand's grandmother grew up in a gypsy camp, and he recently learned that he is descended from the Roma. When he left the camp, it felt like that part of him at the gypsy camp should not exist. In his quest, Giovanni asks himself: if you are descended from the Roma, can you also feel and call yourself Roma, even if you haven't been to the gypsy camp in over ten years? And is it true that you are shunned at that gypsy camp if you have left it? And are Roma, in turn, shunned by the whole world?

In Zigeunerkind met traan, Giovanni, together with Chris Comvalius who plays his grandmother, opens the door to worlds that often remain closed. He finds out that judgment is in our nature, just as the Roma blood is in him. You can ignore it, but it is undeniably there.

About Giovanni Brand

Giovanni Brand is a performer and writer, graduated from the Maastricht Theater Academy. He always starts from his most intimate thoughts, so that there is always an enormous personal necessity in his work. He contrasts this personal necessity with the world in which we now live. On stage, he is boundless because he believes that no borders should exist in any form. The darkness that lurks in his work contrasts with the lightness he brings with him as a person. Both on stage and in his life.
