People Like You is a personal family epic about a family that remains silent. Three generations cannot or do not want to talk about important feelings and thoughts. Silence is passed on from generation to generation. At the dinner table they talk to each other about everything, but not everything. What do conversations mean when illness, desire and fear are not allowed or cannot be put on the table?

In this production of WAT WE DOEN, Floris van Delft directs a top cast with Imanuelle Grives, Simon Heijmans, Sigrid ten Napel and Juan Zyad. Ud player Haytham Safia accompanies the performance with music from all over the world.

In this performance, Floris van Delft, creator of the performances Schijn (Fahd Larhzaoui) and JA (Nasrdin Dchar), interweaves his traditional Dutch family history with the experiences of people who have their roots thousands of kilometers away and whose family stories still seem telling. on that of his own family. With this personal performance, Floris asks the question: are taboos a universal phenomenon? And how open are we really in the Netherlands?
