SPEAK! premiere at Kunstenfestivaldesarts

The premiere of the new production SPEAK! with Sanja Mitrovic and Geert Vaes will take place on Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels on 9th of May 2013 (BE).

SPEAK! is a performance about the power and virtuosity of public speaking and its potential to shape society. Working with a wealth of historical material, two performers try to win the audience approval. In the end, is there a winner? And if so, who will that be?

In SPEAK!, Sanja Mitrović continues her exploration of various systems of communication. In a set-up that is evocative of a political campaign or an election the audience is expected to vote for its ‘representative’. In their attempts to win over hearts and minds of the viewers, the performers draw from an arsenal of historical speeches. They put to test the recruiting force of these speeches and the affective potential of images they propose. Would the performers be able to stage an image that we can all imagine together? Are we willing to participate in the temporary collectivity that the performance creates?

Together with Belgian performer Geert Vaes, Mitrović explores the capacity of language, and its public performance, to mobilise a society and to create an image of the world that we can share and participate in. Marked by subtle humor, driven by playfulness and shot through with painful moments, SPEAK! is a performance that takes us on an emotional journey through images from our collective history and our possible futures.

Left for Europe, End Up in Noord

I did not have any dreams when I left for Europe, because my father was working as a migrant worker and picked me up from Turkey. Now I am married, have a nice job and I raise my kids in North-Amsterdam. – Aydin Ure, chairman of S.T.I.S.C.C.A.N Mosque

“Crash Course Chit Chat” searches for the realistic possibility of a future for the European dream. It started by questioning the cliches of old Europeans coming from Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain. Now the project continues in North-Amsterdam with a community project. Left for Europe, End Up in Noord is about the new Europeans.

“Left for Europe, End Up in Noord” is a community project that introduces “the other Europeans”, the new ones that came to live here and their second and third generation. It aims for getting insight into closed groups with which we normally do not have contact with, not have access to. With this project Sanja Mitrovic wants to give visibility, to understand their point of view, how do they consider themselves as European.

Presentations of the workshops which director Sanja Mitrovic and her actors made in North Amsterdam, are based on their successful performance “Crash Course Chit Chat”, in collaboration with stichting Cleopatra, de Noorderling Vrouwen Club de STISCCAN moskee, de Vrouwenbazaar and the Weekendschool Noord.

The participants – migrant women, men and kids from North-Amsterdam – re-enact their experiences: what did they dream of when they left for Europe? What do think of Europe now? Do they feel new Europeans? Which prejudices and jokes do they have about other Europeans of North-Amsterdam?

Presentations can be seen during the Winters Binnen Festival at:


Saturday 15 December

S.T.I.S.C.C.A.N Moskee, Ribesstraat 75, Amsterdam-Noord

19.30-20.00 h 



Sunday 16 December

De Vrouwenbazaar, Heimansweg 33, Amsterdam-Noord

14.00-15.00 h 

Presentation: participants of S.T.I.S.C.C.A.N Moskee, IMC Weekendschool, Vrouwenbazaar, Stichting Cleopatra and Noorderling Vrouwenclub.
