An almost-one-man show. With a man, a real one. One and a half, if we’re being nice. Just the half if we’re being critical. No matter what, he steals the show. And the fans love that. Some say he’s hot. And the fans love that. And the women? Do they love it? That doesn’t matter. Or does it? It’s him who has the floor, him who gets heard. That’s how it goes when you’re a public persona, right? You say what they want to hear from you, no? And what about them?

This solo performance directed by KVS face Pitcho Womba Konga offers a unique and intriguing view of the omnipresent rape culture. It takes the audience right to the heart of the issue. Laryssa Kim’s soundscape and a contribution by sexologist Zina Hamzaoui mingle with an unsettling performance by Salim Haouach and the voice of Nihale Touati.

Ras El Hanout was founded over ten years ago by a group of Brussels friends who believe in theatre as a means for empowerment and dialogue. The company, led by artistic director Salim Haouach, now has its own theatre in the heart of Molenbeek and tours yearly with several productions. In ten years, they have created over 30 theatre plays, which were performed over 300 times in total for over 40.000 viewers.

The One et Demi Man Show is the first coproduction by Ras El Hanout and KVS. We proudly present the online premiere on March 18 at 20:00 on the platform KVS 24/7. The performance (45 mins) is followed by a 30-minute discussion (FR/NL) with Pitcho Womba Konga (director and co-author), Salim Haouach (actor and co-author) and Zina Hamzaoui (midwife and relational therapist), moderated by Kristin Rogghe (KVS dramaturge). The performance can be viewed online until midnight on March 21.


This livestream will be available from March 18, 8pm to March 21, midnight. With your ticket you can watch it when and how often you want during these 4 days. You will receive the direct link to the livestream via email, so keep an eye on your mailbox.

The artists who put together this performance poured all their love, time and focus into it. Out of respect for their creation, we ask that you do not share this link with people who did not buy a ticket.
