Yusuf in Rotterdam

On Saturday 7 November, Yusuf Can’t Talk toured to Rotterdam to perform at the Rotterdams Wijktheater Somali Dag, alongside RWT’s very own Sahra, the Qalanjo African fashion show, and the film My journey to Mogadishu.

One hundred people from the large Somali community living in Rotterdam came to watch the acta show, created with Somali mothers at Autism Independence to raise awareness about autism.

Audience members spoke about how the show had opened doors and opened hearts.

The acta team recall Nura in tears in the theatre at the end of the show, and an audience member throwing a packet of tissues down to her on the stage.The day was an incredible journey and an unforgettable experience for both performers and audience alike.

A massive thank you to all our friends at Rotterdams Wijktheater for such a wonderful welcome.
