Living as a black woman in a white world is always being hyper-visible and at the same time almost invisible. That's growing up with far more windows than mirrors.

Dalilla Hermans, author (of Brief aan Cooper en de wereld, Zwart, Brown Girl Magic, Black-Out) and columnist at De Standaard, investigated her own experiences in recent years in books and columns.

For her first play she wanted to capture, beyond her own eyes, the special 'sisterhood' that lives among black women. Together with Abigail Abraham she drew up a guest list of inspirational black women in Flanders and Brussels and the two invited them for a 24-hour stay at Villa Hellebosch.

As many as 31 women (actresses, singers, illustrators, writers, social workers, cleaners, poets, dancers) in their early twenties and also over their fifties, joined them.

What happened there was magical. It went far beyond beauty, beyond smiles, beyond hips dancing to the beat, beyond eating and catching up. None of the women will ever be the same after this weekend. Everything was put on the table, traumas they didn't even know they had. Joy too, intense joy and a deep sense of the need to come together, share, and draw self-love from the natural connection with each other.

On the basis of audio, video and photographic material of this special stay, Dalilla Hermans writes her(e). Abigail Abraham is on stage. Not a monologue, but a dialogue. Between black women among each other. Between black women and the white look on them.

We are her(e).
