Inventory of Powerlessness

In the Inventory of Powerlessness dozens of participants of different ages and backgrounds bundle knowledge and experience about powerlessness. A wide range of individual and often personal situations are brought into a collective setting and explored together with the audience. This gives rise to discussion and impulses, which interrogate the structures -social, political and economical- that give context to our lives. In Dutch with simultaneous translation to English.
