This performance features powerful sounds, and atmospheric fog/smoke effects. Additionally, dialogues will explore sensitive and profound topics, including colonialism and violence, among others.

A multidisciplinary performance featuring video installations, live painting and music. Post-colonial descendants from the Netherlands, Switzerland and Indonesia address questions around colonialism, cultural and personal biases: how does our history continue to influence our present? Who can actually speak about the past? Whose voice is being heard?

Video

How does our history continue to influence our present? In this production post-colonial descendants from the Netherlands, Switzerland and Indonesia unite in artistic research on colonialism, as well as cultural and personal biases.

Through meetings with Indonesian experts from various workfields, they explore methods of dealing with colonialism and decolonization through dialogues. Their collective efforts will lead to the creation of The Indonesian Dialogues, a multidisciplinary performance featuring video installations, live illustrations, music and storytelling. The audience is invited to navigate between different perspectives and to engage with the dialogue themselves.
