This was the fate of many so-called half-blooded children in the 1960s. Born from extramarital relationships between Flemish and African citizens, they were excluded by their community and denied by the Belgian government. Both children and parents had to endure intolerance and incomprehension from all sides.

The musical theatre performance Métisse brings their common past and present to the stage: the stories of three generations flow through one another. In this way, a hidden part of history and contemporary society comes to the surface. How has the identity struggle of métis children developed over the last decades?
