SITES OF MEMORY - CHANGING PORTRAITS

THEATRICAL BOAT TRIP EXPLORING THE COLONIAL AND CULTURAL HISTORY OF AMSTERDAM

Sites of Memory – Changing Portraits is a theatrical boat trip regarding the hidden stories of slavery and the colonial history of Amsterdam. Professional and amateur players worked together and took a fresh look into the history, with the primary focus on “Changing portraits”. Portraits of people from the 17th century, till present. Prominent figures, but also those people who remained invisible are being highlighted. The tour passes through various locations in the historic city center, where actors on board and from the docks, bring to life stories from ancient times through poetry, dance and music.

Sites of Memory is a collaboration Amsterdam Roots, Afrovibes, Poetry Circle Nowhere and Black Heritage Tours and is a part of WeMakeThe.City.
