When Sanne Wallis de Vries was young, she was convinced that when she grew up she would get a dick, the cabaret artist tells Tuesday evening in talk show Op1, talking about her new theater show Kom .
"I had an older brother and we always had to shower together. Well, things went wrong there," Wallis de Vries says with a laugh. "His was at my eye level, I will say."
"I thought that if I got bigger, I would get a penis too." When her mother answered that it was not because Wallis de Vries was "the same as her," she was shocked.
Wallis de Vries believes that it should not matter at all "what you have between your legs", that is also discussed during her new theater show Kom. That is something she has learned from her two daughters, 15 and 11 years old.
The show will also be about them in part. "I am often surprised to see what comes out of their mouths and sometimes I don't understand half of what they say." She finds inspiration for her work there.
That used to be easier. "Then I was able to leave them with the babysitter and just perform, but now they come and see for themselves. And there have been mothers in the schoolyard who said to them:" I laughed so much about what your mother says about you. " That is of course really terrible. "
"I really have to sit down with them one more time and tell what I am saying," she says.
Kom will premiere on March 5 in De Kleine Komedie in Amsterdam.
