'Being able to be yourself. That runs like a thread through my life. Even when I was young, I did not seem to fit into the family I grew up in. Not because I am extremely different. I fit the bill quite well. But I felt out of place. I did not know why, until I discovered the theatre. A place where I was seen, where my story was allowed to exist.'
Meet the Whopper Queen. The knife-thrower. The star of the screen. The theatre passionate. Meet Nora Akachar. After giving a platform to the stories of others with Traumas of Nora, Nora Akachar now tells her own story.
Honestly, stripped of all politeness and embellishment. A story of an ordinary girl from the Schilderswijk in The Hague.
