LASHERAS AMAT, M. del Pilar et al. I was born a woman, the life of Mame: the dramatization of intergenerational inclusion. Gac Sanit [online]. 2010, vol.24, n.3, pp.259-261. ISSN 0213-9111.

I was born a woman, the life of Mame is the dramatization a fictitious intergenerational story. However, the story is based on true events and the feelings of real immigrant women. The dramatization narrates the life of a woman, from the time her parents-who had recently emigrated from Senegal-settled in Andalusia, up to the adolescence of Mame's own daughter. The story is told with one person on stage who, through the use of three costume changes, plays three different generations of women: mother, daughter and granddaughter, with the video-recorded testimonies of other characters (a teacher and a midwife), who express their views of the host society against a background of African music and pictures of their native country. The present article describes their goals, such as communication in conferences, and includes a concise summary of the script, reflections on the process of integrating, and the evaluation made after a performance.

Keywords : Immigration; Migrations; Intergenerational inclusion.
