Two intertwined monologues about womanhood & immigration merge and diverge, coalesce and bounce off each other.
When Camille transfers to London, she finds herself following a well-traveled road. She left her country to discover and grow, yet her reality slowly narrows. But when complications with her baby arise, she needs to truthfully engage with the society that has welcomed her.
Naysam arrives at seventeen in France as a foreign student with a suitcase and a heart filled with books – thinking she will finally live the stories of her favourite fictional characters, and find a home.
But the reality of immigration documents, economic and social survival quickly take the best of her.
The two stories run in parallel and build together, keeping the audience engaged in fast-paced alternative sequences.
Behind Our Skin takes place on one fateful day for France: Bastille Day 2016, which intertwines our two storylines.
