The Waves

The new performance The Waves by Khadija El Kharraz Alami is not only based on the eponymous book by Virginia Woolf but also on essays by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Audre Lorde and Simon(e) van Saarloos. The Waves will be a ritual, a manifesto, an immersive experience centred on female beauty, pain and vulnerability. Together with four actresses, El Kharraz Alami investigates how deeply internalized experiences of oppression and abuse of power can be transformed into a creative force. The Waves is a physical space where we stare trauma in the eye, celebrate pleasure, bless the body and share the power of creation. Expect an urgent and ruthless theater experience. Note: this performance contains explicit scenes with nudity, the performance can be experienced as triggering.
