The theater festival about shared past, present and future.
Every Thursday in the month of June, Theater De Generator will be based on the theme of Ankrá, the Leiden theater festival for the performing arts of black makers.
Ankrá is Papiamento for anchored. In the context of Leiden European City of Science 2022, the new festival opens the way to knowledge about and healing of the shared slavery past and colonial history. Gripping theatre, performance, music, dance and active spiritual healing practices related to the theme, organized from part of the black Leiden community. The Dutch slavery history has consequences. Colonialism creates a wide web of transatlantic relationships in which we are interwoven. The suffering is still palpable. Generations and Kingdom dwellers each deal with this in their own way. Ankrá offers them and their stories the stage.
