This year, Dutch National Opera and RIGHTABOUTNOW INC. will be joining forces once again to celebrate and commemorate Keti Koti - 'breaking the chains'. Together, we have created a colourful programme that looks back on our colonial past, and gives us an opportunity to continue working with many of our partners, while simultaneously seeking out new collaborations.
National manifestation Theatre for Keti Koti
The long silence is finally being broken and perspectives are starting to shift. As we try to move to a more open and robust society, we are increasingly shining a light on histories that have remained unjustly hidden for a long time. Our colonial past is a dark chapter in our shared national history and its effects can still be felt today. This is why four years ago, we decided it was essential that we reflect on our colonial past and celebrate the abolition of slavery within the context of theatre.
RIGHTABOUTNOW INC. (RAN INC.) is an interdisciplinary urban production house and centre for the performing arts. Founded by Marjorie Boston and Maarten van Hinte, RAN INC. casts the spotlight on a new generation of creatives and artists by hosting events, exhibitions and social projects in the Netherlands and abroad.
