Dorothée Munyaneza
From €15

A stage for the stories of six strong women.

Duration 1 hour, no interval
Language multiple languages, with Dutch and English surtitles
World premiere 23 October 2020 Charleroi

For her work Mailles, ‘mesh’, the choreographer Dorothée Munyaneza, herself originally from Kigali (Rwanda), gathered a group of six very different artists and put them on stage together. She feels a deep kinship with each of them because of their strength and social involvement. The women are African, or have African roots, and speak out about their experiences with violence and oppression, while celebrating their strength as women. -|-Each woman tells her story in her own language, in her own way - from spoken word to flamenco. The designer and visual artist Stéphanie Coudert connects the various elements with costumes and set design. On stage, this makes for a crossroad where all stories meet. About the group, Munyaneza says: ‘We are interwoven stories. We are melodies. We are humanity. We are crossings. Beyond identity, we are geographical, generational and professional network.’

Your visit to ITA during Holland Festival

Like ITA, the Holland Festival adheres to the current corona measures, as drawn up by the RIVM and the Dutch government. As long as the coronavirus is not yet under control, testing can help to step by step make more possible. The national government wants to use testing for access in order to facilitate social activities in a safe way.

In concrete terms, this means that in order to gain access to the performances taking place at ITA during the Holland Festival, in addition to your admission ticket you must also be able to present a negative test result in the form of a QR code in the CoronaCheck app.

This works in the following way:

  • You make an appointment via 'Testen voor toegang' and get tested within 40 hours before the start of the performance.
  • You will receive an e-mail with the result of your test.
  • If you do not have Corona, you will receive the negative test result.
  • You can then use the app CoronaCheck to turn your test result into a test certificate.
  • This certificate takes the form of a QR code.
  • You have this QR code scanned at the entrance of ITA.

Please note: only test results that are scheduled via Testen voor toegang are accepted for access.

On the Testen voor toegang website you will find an extensive FAQ section.
