Epiphany - Dalilla Hermans & Mungu Cornelis
Revelation. That’s what he’s searching for: a revelation. Like the moment when the light is switched on and you see everything clearly after groping around in the dark. He is old. He has been living a long time. But he still bumps into all kinds of things. Not even out of clumsiness but because of the things that are never clear to him, the question marks and the blind spots about who he is and why he is.
He was abandoned, relinquished, given away. To a couple on the other side of the world, on another continent. He has always lived that long life half in the dark. Until now. Now he’s ready for some introspection. Wants to look his parents in the eye. And everyone. And you. Epiphany lets you enter the mind of a man in search of himself and fills your head along the way with questions about yourself. A monologue about identity, adoption, family, parenthood, love.
