“The Silent Monologue” is Amy’s life.
The life of a maid.
She began working from the age of 12, if not younger.
Her job is not secure.
It’s a life of daily servitude to her employer.
Constrained to return to her village, to give birth to her daughter, she is filled both with hope and hopelessness.
The utterances of other maids, the complaints of washerwomen, the struggle of all those living on rue 11 in the Medina echo her situation.
The rage of the slam poet Fatim Poulo Sy
Our anger rising...
Like a polyphony
