RADICAL TENDERNESS | various artists

Under the theme of Radical Tenderness, different perspectives come together in this energetic, moving and sincere one-night-only combo programme. With the dance performance Together by Donna chittick, a spin off of WAT WE DOEN’s Hoe ik talent voor het leven kreeg and writer Edward van de Vendel about his new book Gloei.

In Together, four dancers show us the women of today: confident, tough, fragile but most of all: together. In a contemporary mix of urban dance styles, choreographer Donna Chittick reveals the everyday life of women and the choices that come their way.
Especially for What You See, theatre company Wat We Doen and ICK Amsterdam create a spin-off of their project Hoe ik talent voor het leven kreeg. Through text and movement, four new Dutch citizens from the LGBTQIA+ community poetically share their experiences of coming to the Netherlands. In addition, Edward van de Vendel reads from his new book Gloei (Glow) in which young queer people share frankly what glows in their lives: love, anger, ambition. His lecture is embedded the drawn portraits of Floor de Goede.

The evening will be presented by (voice) actor, comedian and presenter Jürgen Theuns.

It is interesting how strongly Chittick puts sisterhood in the centre: even if one of the dancers radically goes her own way.
