Internationale Vrouwendag

"WITCH! That was the theme for International Women's Day 2024 in Tilburg. A witch is an ancient symbol of condemnation and stigmatization. For example, Sigrid Kaag had #Hexit stuck on her back by Geert Wilders when she left the cabinet (the witch is exit). But a witch also represents unrestraint and individuality.

During International Women's Day, we asked ourselves and participants from Tilburg to bring different contemporary witch versions of ourselves. We changed outfits six times, from your unrestrained self to #stigmas you personally deal with. A few examples of these stigma's:

#weird #what are you #exotic #over the top #herb woman #fiery #faggot #redhead

Stigmas must be fought, which is why we ritually burned them in our witches' circle.

This pop-up performance was made possible thanks to Theater De Nieuwe Vorst & Feniks Emancipation Center and with the support of the Municipality of Tilburg. Mark March 8, 2025, in your calendar!
