In 2018-2019 a well-read band of book brothers did a theater tour with De Indië Monologen [The Dutch East Indies Monologues]. The group consisted of well-known authors, musicians, actors and leading figures from the media, the press and politics. What they have in common? Their East-Indian background or strong involvement with the history of the Dutch East Indies.

Especially for Powered by Boulevard they compiled a summer edition of De Indië Monologen. This version consists of two nights of stories, singing and music, that can be visited ‘seperately’ as well.
On Monday 24 August journalist Ricci Scheldwacht and authors Ellen Deckwitz and Reggie Baay tell their stories.
On Tuesday 25 August Bodil de la Parra, Ronald Douglas and Mei Li Vos take the stage. Astrid Seriese and guitarist Erwin van Ligten accompany them musically.

An extra reason for this special edition of De Indië Monologen: 15 August 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies. A liberation of course, even though a bloody war between the Netherlands and pro-independence forces would follow. On 15 August Theaterfestival Boulevard dedicates a special TV program on these historic events. More information on this project, which consists of both celebration and commemoration, follows soon.
