This performance is in English.

Spoken word artist Sunni Lamin Barrow takes you to different stages of a journey he made himself: his flight from Gambia to the Netherlands because of his sexual orientation.

How does your environment influence who you are? Sunni Lamin Barrow takes you back to his youth and shares the stories and poems he wrote about that time, influenced by the fear of punishment and exclusion that exist for LGBTQ+ expressions in his motherland. A Fist of Tongues is a poetic performance in which Sunni explores the different stages of his life since fleeing Gambia. In this performance, in which storytelling merges with visuals, sound design and dance, Sunni testifies about what it is like to live as an African queer person, and about the decisive influence of one’s parents.
