    from National Theatre of Scotland / Added

    www.nationaltheatrescotland.com twitter.com/NTSonline Rites is a powerful and provocative new production exploring the deep-rooted cultural practice of Female Genital Mutilation. This ritual of enforced cutting has been performed for centuries and millions of girls worldwide, often as young as five years old, are still subjected to it. The reasons are complicated and myriad. It depends who you are, and it depends what you've been taught. Some things are simple though: FGM is still happening across the world. FGM is happening in the UK, here and now. Rites is based on recent interviews and true stories from girls affected in Scotland and the rest of the UK, mothers who feel under pressure to continue the practice, and the experiences of midwives, lawyers, police officers, teachers and health workers trying to effect change in communities. Weaving together different perspectives into a multi-voiced production, the play explores the complexities, misconceptions and challenges involved in trying to change what is to many, a fundamental rite of passage. Created by Cora Bissett and Yusra Warsama Directed by Cora Bissett Sound Design/Composer Patricia Panther Video Designer Kim Beveridge A co-production between the National Theatre of Scotland and Contact, supported by the Scottish Refugee Council and Dignity Alert Research Forum An age guide of 14+ is suggested for this production

      Wie heisst es so schön: Über den Tellerrand hinaus sehen ? Das gelingt im Frankfurter Nordend ganz von selbst - wenn man NACHBARN begegnet. Zum Beispiel Mariame , die zwar seit über zwanzig Jahren Frankfurterin ist, aber den Kontakt zu ihrem Herkunftsland Senegal in Westafrika nie abgebrochen hat und auch in ihrem faszinierenden Beruf immer wieder dort tätig ist. Eine weitere wunderbare Begegnung, an der wir die Zuschauer von Telefon-Trottoir gerne teilhaben lassen - ganz zu Schweigen von dem afrikanischen Sonnenaufgang über Frankfurt, den Annette Maibach von ihrem Balkon in Bad Soden aus aufgenommen hat. Dr. Mariame Racine Sow über Weibliche Beschneidung, Polygamie, Armut und Frankfurt.
