SamenvattingDescription provided by the artist: .The image is a poster of Silvia Albert Sopale’s play No Es Pais Para Negras, which was performed in the city of Oviedo last December. The performance was organized by CODOPA, a local NGO.. .'No es país para negras' is Silvia Albert Sopale's first solo performance and probably one of the first plays written and staged by a black woman in Spain. Born in San Sebastián from Nigerian and Ecuatorial Guinean parents, she has participated in other performances such as a version of 'La casa de Bernarda Alba', 'Memories', or 'Pallasas Power', where black female subjectivity has been put at the center. .Determined to open a space for black women artists in Spain and to make female authorship visible, she introduces her play as a 'legacy' and as her way to change the world, to raise awareness and encourage reflection. It is a work that is self-referential while giving voice to African descendants in Spain, a fight against covert racism and paternalistic views on Africa. 'No es país para negras' is, as she states, a play that 'speaks of a place that is inside one's own' as she reveals her personal journey of rejection, acceptance and fight for recognition throughout her performance.. .This artwork is part of the project Footnotes on Equality: http://footnotesonequality.eu/all/
