Over  Who Wants to Meet a Real God Damn American
Lecture performance

Who Wants to Meet a Real God Damn American? is een lecture performance  waarbij Noah Voelker probeert te begrijpen wat het betekent om een ​​echte Amerikaan te zijn. Hij ontmantelt daarmee de vooroordelen die wij als Europeanen hebben, maar laat ook zien hoe sturend een nationale of lokale cultuur kan zijn in je ontwikkeling.

Who Wants to Meet a Real God Damn American is a storytelling performance in which Noah Voelker tries to understand what it means to be a real American. He thereby dismantles the prejudices we Europeans have, but also shows how steering a national or local culture can be in your evolvement.
