In March it is the day: The Netherlands will vote in the municipal elections. But how is our democracy doing? Research shows that trust in democracy is declining worldwide, and our Dutch democracy is also under pressure. It is high time to take a close look at democracy: something has to change, but what exactly and how?

Democracy in a whirlwind

In the live research performance 'In Search of Democracy 3.0', Company New Heroes (in cooperation with Het Zuidelijk Toneel and ARSENAAL) searches together with the audience for what our democracy should look like now. What are the challenges? Where do the opportunities lie? 'In Search of Democracy 3.0' is a combination of theatre, music and direct dialogue with the audience. In this dynamic performance, the history of democracy is told in a whirlwind, the audience votes and the open and accessible atmosphere creates the possibility for the audience to have their say.

In the press

"From the very first minute, the three playfully involve the audience in their quest.... no one is too shy to contribute verbally to the seemingly loose discussion, which on the other hand is kept tightly under control by De Man and is cleverly and wittily fed by his actresses.... Quick, improvised jokes in between, and a great pile of suggestions from the audience." - Dagblad van het Noorden

"Much will have to change to keep democracy real and alive. The creative people on the floor know how to stimulate the people into small and large suggestions heart-warming and surprising. Wonderful to experience!" -Theaterkrant

Lieve Stad

25 March - 3 april

Lieve Stad,

Amsterdam is a city of many faces, literally, because we live here together with many different nationalities. Lieve Stad is about the city and all its inhabitants. This festival, a collaboration between ITA and Meervaart, is about bringing people together, in the city, in the theatre, in society. How do we live together and what stories do all individuals and groups carry with them? They all have their own stories, strengths and challenges. Showing these is the starting point of Lieve Stad.
