Over dit evenement

What's THE RED BOX:

THE RED BOX is a play about the visibility and empowerment of prostitutes throughout History. An original text based on the lives of 4 important characters from past centuries, who overcome barriers of discrimination, submission and slavery while exercising a true claim for their space and rights in society.

It's a play inspired in the side of the empowerment of women that, through the History, were prostitutes, for different reasons and they used this condition to grow as a person and / or to break the barriers of submission, demerit or slavery, to transform in self-confident people capable of choosing their own life and using their sex as their own business and choice.

In Amsterdam, currently amid the debate over whether prostitution windows should remain part of the Red Light District landscape, or whether they should be moved elsewhere and under other conditions, sex workers defend their right to remain in what they consider to be their space, like any other worker.

The connection between the environment of these historical figures and the current scene may seem a mere coincidence that, however, seeks to provoke reflection in the viewer.

What's not THE RED BOX?

It's not a play about prostitution or sexual work in the general meaning of these terms.

The idea:

The idea that gave rise to the work was: "What's a prostitute thinking in a showcase when she doesn't have a client? What goes through her mind? Why not the connection with a character in History who, also, by different reasons , was a prostitute, showing her reality, her struggle and her empowerment?"

The performance:

The first monologue that was the origin to THE RED BOX project premiered on February 28 and 29, 2020, participating in the D10 International Theatre Festival in Amsterdam and lasted only 10 minutes.

From there, the project was developed to 4 monologues and two interactions that constitute the current play, which was released, after several months of rehearsals, in December 2020, with 4 actresses, who represent 4 characters from 4 different origins and ages in History.

The start of the 2021 season was delayed by the closing of theaters due to the coronavirus.

After a few presentations for a small audience at Juan C. Tajes Art-Studio & Microteatro, in the Red Light District of Amsterdam, THE RED BOX now arrives at the iconic HET BADHUISTHEATER, to present itself to an audience that is accustomed and loves theater in English, as well as also expanding the radius of action of the play in another emblematic neighborhood of Amsterdam.

Resume:

THE RED BOX is a play about the visibility and empowerment of prostitutes throughout history. An original text based on the lives of 4 important characters from past centuries, who overcome barriers of discrimination, submission and slavery while exercising a true claim for their space and rights in society.
