Confessions of a White Girl

To follow up her clever and entertaining confessional shows De Therapie and Is this porn? No this is love, Julie Cafmeyer [1987] is throwing herself right back into the cavernous depths of love. With great abandon; the Flemish theatre maker wouldn’t, couldn’t do it any other way. For her candid theatre solo Confessions of a White Girl she is mining her most recent amorous and sexual adventures in places like Myanmar, Ruanda and Belarus. It’s not easy, this love across boundaries: she may be a desirable woman for her foreign partners, but first and foremost, she’s a white woman. It disrupts the power play, as Julie Cafmeyer has discovered. Suddenly, she is no longer subjected to the sexual morals of European men, but disturbingly, deserving of privileges because of her Western whiteness. Should she indulge or be ashamed? Julie’s style can be described as atypical stand-up, with a pleasant love of exploring uncomfortable situations. Wry, raw and poetic.

Julie Cafmeyer maakt iets los. Of het nu woede, afkeer of bewondering is: haar voorstellingen over vrouw-zijn lokken reactie uit. Ze stelt vragen vanuit de kwetsbare positie van iemand die zoekt. En op vragen komen soms stekelige antwoorden, zo bewijst (Confessions of a White Girl) Bad Woman.
