Ahead of the launch of thee new podcast from Legal Aliens theatre company, Things I Am Not, Ana Maria Monjardino talks to their artistic director Lara Parmiani and writer/performers Emmanuela Lia and Yasmeen Audisho Ghrawi.



Things I am Not features 10 original audio monologues, each written and performed by a female artist who has migrated to the United Kingdom.

Recognising the stereotypes often projected onto migrant women, ranging from exotic seductress to benefit scrounger to victim with no agency, we’ve asked artists to respond to the theme Things I am Not in the style and form they prefer.

Each monologue will be accompanied by an original digital artwork by Laura Rouzet.

Things I Am Not is available on podcast platforms and at
