PAY ATTENTION: this performance partly starts outside the theater. Here you can find all informations.
El Kharraz Alami’s new production The Waves is not only based on the book by Virginia Woolf, but also on essays by writers including Clarissa Pinkola Estes and Audre Lorde. The Waves is a ritual, a manifesto and an immersive experience centred on feminine beauty, pain and vulnerability.
With four female actors, El Kharraz Alami explores how deeply internalised experiences of oppression, and the abuse of power can be transformed into creative power. The Waves presents a physical space in which we can dare to look traumas in the eye, celebrate pleasure, bless the body and share the power of creation. Expect an urgent and ruthless theatre experience.
