TR Herdenkt & Viert: Keti Koti dag 2 Theater Rotterdam


We start the program with a sound healing session by composer and multi-instrumentalist Dizzi Geetha, followed by the Deep Dive dialogue sessions with Mathieu Charles. The healing effect of sound and music opens our senses and prepares us for a deep conversation with each other. Between these connecting sessions we serve a light lunch/brunch for the public.

We will then present our specially curated Dresi fu yeye program in the Main Hall with musical contributions from Djuwa Mroivili & James Oesi. Gospel Choir plays music from their program Songs of Slavery & Freedom. Our artistic director Alida Dors will talk to various table guests. After the Dresi fu yeye hall program, there will be a festive end to the weekend with an all female cookout/block party. DJ Cijntje and DJ Jasmine Perez are behind the turntables and Grande Loge provides the live entertainment. There are stalls and of course you can also eat delicious food there. Will we see you on the block?


In the hall of Theater Rotterdam we also exhibit a special collection of images that we have collected. Slavery seems long ago and far away, but it has been 'only' 150 years since its official abolition within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Many families still carry the stories, the burdens and live the consequences of what happened then. Perhaps there are still living grandparents who knew those relatives themselves! These types of families and their stories will be seen and read in this exhibition.
