No longer without you

for all our mothers, daughters and sisters 
for all our fathers, sons and brothers 
no longer without you

do I wish to fight for my freedom  
accept loneliness as the price I pay

for my voice  
for taking ownership of my honour 
no longer without you 

do I wish to make this pain fruitless 
so that new generations are spared 
this legacy 
so that our childrenand their childrens children 
can be who they are

but no longer without you...

‘Your father and I have decided that if you don’t do as we say, we’ll commit suicide.’ “The phrase stabbed me in the back. For the first time in my 18 years it hit me with sharp clarity. I turned around and saw my place in the midst of my community, uninhabited by me. Because I was different, therefore unworthy. A place to leave for good. I looked my mother straight in the eye. But it’s my place, my right of birth. I’m not going to be turned into a stranger. I won’t do as you say. I will follow my own path, and while doing that, you cannot cast me out, because I will be different, but not without you.” 

Nazmiye Oral developed her concept for Niet Meer Zonder Jou (No Longer Without You) based on her own experience. The actors recount how they, with the ones dearest to them, went their own way, at the same time refusing to estrange themselves from their communities. In tandem with and inextricably connected to the live encounter is a series of portrait photographs, which are displayed in the public space.

Nazmiye Oral about her project

“Growing up in an Islamic culture of 'we' meant  that the 'I' which was forming in me clashed with the existing structures. There was no room for me to live according to the autonomous 'I', with its own rules, and stay within my culture at the same time. It seemed these two structures could only exist separately from each other. Choosing one meant giving up the other. Niet Meer Zonder Jou (No Longer Without You) originates from the wish to break down these barriers, to be able to be 'me' without having to give up my place in my community, to create a fluid, free space in which there's only one guiding principle: love. This is only possible if both camps fully enter into the experiment of Niet Meer Zonder Jou and surrender themselves to a radical intimacy, even inflict intimacy on themselves.

What does it mean when you decide for yourself: 'I know where I can find the key, I'm stepping out of this prison, I'm going to be myself, but 'No Longer Without You', meaning that you share everything - everything that I am and everything that you are?' This is what Nazmiye Oral tried to do when she persuaded her mother to live with her in a specially created space in which everything can be addressed, including the distance, the rejection, the disputes, the violence, the love. 

Not only have actors and musicians entered the experiment of Niet Meer Zonder Jou, but members from the 'we' camp also participate: they put themselves in a vulnerable position in front of the camera, reaching out to family members who they could not share this intimacy with before. These photographs will be exhibited on billboards around the city, along the various routes leading to the performance location. 

The community of people who have been photographed will frequently visit the space of mother and daughter to participate in workshops leading up to the performance, which they will influence through the structures and dynamics they bring to it. 
On the night, the audience will also bring their own structures of 'I' and 'we' to the performance, acting as a living, breathing part of the performance, having an impact on the space, the themes, the energy and the course of the evening, as well as having an impact on each other. 

How can you reject love in order to achieve real love? How can you counter this love, pierce right through the other's chest, take their heart in your hand and softly say: 'This is who I am, I will live my life, but 'No Longer Without You'.

DE THEATERKRANT | MAX ARIAN | ★ ★ ★ ★
"Which makes this project so unique is that it does not get caught in the contradictions. Reconciliation is not so much sought, but contact, discussion, conversation, a fight, if necessary, for "I will not do what you say. I will follow my own path and while doing, I will not let me cast out. I wíll be different, but No Longer Without You." Not anymore:. There is a lot to precede if you can say so.
What a wonderful project of Nazmiye Oral and Adelheid Roosen - strong women. Therefore the more admiration for the courage and love of mother Oral to participate in this performance, where she remains standing regally with her honest common sense, conservative humor and universal wisdom."

DE VOLKSKRANT | KARIN VERAART | 
★ ★ ★ ★
"The daughter, determined to fight her autonomy while she refuses to give up her place in the (traditional) community of her mother. The mother equally determined not to be thrown off balance by the verbal force of the child. It is 'putting yourself to intimacy', uncomfortable, loving, hard, valuable.  You wonder ervery now and then if it is a performance. Yes, it kind of is, also. It is a play, a brave play of contemplation and very beautiful."

HET PAROOL | SANDER JANSSENS | ★ ★ ★
"The physical battle when Havva wants to prevent her daughter to expose herself naked infront of the audience is not without reason so touching : the emotion wins from the ratio for a moment. 
Eventually the performance comes nicely together as Nazmiye introduces her mother to her community: the theater audience - which mainly seems to (want to) recognize the spirited character of Nazmiye, but maybe somewhere just as judgmental as the Muslim community where Nazmiye escaped from."

NRC HANDELSBLAD | JOKE BEECKMANS | ★ ★ ★
"The confrontation is violent. From the beginning public and actors are stirred to tears. At the same time, there is discomfort. [...] In the background musicians play and sing, among them Meral Polat and her father, live melancholy Turkish songs. It turns this private coversation into interesting theater." 

LEIDSCH DAGBLAD | 
SONJA DE JONG
"All thorny issues pass by: honor killing, abortion, homosexuality and forced marriages. The people of the photos tell about themselves, singing and sazmuziek support the stories. And in between, there is always the voice of Oral who asks, she lays her mother, but also herself upon the rack. To stay sidelines during this rare incisive performance is impossible. What Oral does, crawls inevitably under your skin."

DE VOLKSKRANT | SUSANNE GEUZE & ANGELA WALS
" 'I (Nazmiye Oral) do not want her (her mother) to die before she knows who I really am and I know who she really is. This conversation takes place in the theater, in three performances. We're on the stage, with our own truth.'
[...] Because of the photoshoot some family members were reunited for the first time in years. Oral: "There flowed a lot of tears. You see the pain, also of the parents. They say now: I wish `i had listened to my children. If only I did not let the community make me scared. They have cut into their own flesh, they see now.' "
