A phone booth in Emmen. A mother and three children are crammed into it and call Curaçao. One of them is Thyson. He can talk to his father for a moment...
ANTI is the personal story of Thyson Miguel. In this storytelling performance he takes you through his youth. Thyson was born in Curaçao and came to the Netherlands at a young age. ANTI is the honest story about balancing hope and the danger of the seamy side of society. About the desire for security. How strong do you have to be to free yourself from your roots, without letting go of what you cherish? How do you take control?
