The difference in the other's gaze.

Five children of immigrants travel to their parents’ country of origin, a country that is not really theirs either. A journey to memory, to the origins, a journey of learning and loss of innocence told in the first person. A journey of learning about the origins of those who were born in a country of which they feel they are children but that has never accepted them as such.

“So where are you from?” Have you ever been asked this question? Maybe sometimes the tone has been kind. Others, perhaps, hinted at a more hostile subtext. People have always been here and there. What happens when you're here but your parents' home country is there? When you're from here, but others don't see you from here? In Nosaltres (A nosotros nos daba igual), you will find five fragments of life. Five journeys towards the origins of the parents, but also towards identity itself, that of the traveller, but also of the audience. Five characters who have had to hear this question too often, the result of a biased look, constructed by a certain discourse, by a story, the one they have told us, the one they have hidden from us, the one they have unconsciously transmitted to us. Five points of view of a part of the citizenry that we have often ignored when telling our joint history.

Helena Tornero, author, and Ricard Soler Mallol, director of the show.
