Freedom is one of our important values. One for which wars were and still are being waged. Yet freedom is an ambiguous concept, one which we here in the Netherlands sometimes regard too quickly as 'free'. What often remains invisible is the fact that we limit the freedom of others, so that our freedom remains intact.

Who pays the price for our freedom? Who do we lock up in a prison or refugee camp in order to feel free? To whom are we denying their freedom of movement so that we can travel safely?

The starting point for the dance performance Freedom is the story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, who was imprisoned for 14 years in Guantanamo Bay where he was interrogated and tortured. He described his story in his book Guantánamo Diary, which was recently made into a film called The Mauritanian. As a writer, Ould Slahi advocates for a world in which freedom is an innate right and forgiveness is a core value. As writer in residence at NITE and De Balie, Mohamedou wrote the original script for the performance for the 21/22 season.

Freedom is an explosive, high-energy and moving dance performance, characteristic of the (now 20-year) tradition by Club Guy & Roni. The performance has been created by Roni Haver and Guy Weizman and is being performed by the prize-winning ensemble of dancers and musicians from the Club and Slagwerk Den Haag.

Due to the tightened corona measures, this performance has been definitively cancelled.
