Kat op het spek / Gerardjan Rijnders

SLAKJE is a theatre monologue of integrity about abuse and how it can scar your life. About people's incredible ability to keep hope, against the odds.

Festival Lieve Stad,
Location Meervaart - Blauwe zaal

Run time tba
Genre Theatre

In Gesprek Wed 22 March


The story is about Jack. From the age of eight, he has been abused by his stepfather. Something that leaves its mark for the rest of his life. He gets on the wrong path, meets the wrong people and gets caught up in the world of underground prostitution. Yet he finds a wonderful way to be proud of the life he leads and the person he has become. It exposes the primal urge to live with dignity that makes itself heard even in the most intense situations.
SLAKJE is a tough but honest monologue of integrity from a man who tells his story as meticulously as possible.

In Gesprek: Gerardjan Rijnders

The performance SLAKJE depicts the merciless story of escort boy Jack. After the performance, Christiaan Mooij will talk to theatre-maker Gerardjan Rijnders.

Festival 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,.
