What is your family’s story?
Ariane is the daughter that Nancy, a South-American woman, never had. While being pregnant she wrote a journal for Ariane, not knowing that she would give birth to a boy. 28 years later Nancy crossed the Atlantic Ocean to reveal the journal to her son. ARIAH LESTER took the words from his mother’s journal, and made them into songs. The performance WHITE [ARIANE] is like a video clip about metamorphosis and nuance; about the relationship with your parents and with yourself. It is a cross-over between a concert and a theatre play, a one-man-show-opera and a burlesque act.
