She is seventeen. The knight in shining armour is coming, student life and partying await her, beyond that a dream job. But there’s also her parents. And her teacher. Her brother. The imam. The carreers counsellor.
In Zeventien (Seventeen) five young Muslim girls are in search of the best way to promote themselves. What are their dreams for the future, their fears, desires, doubts? The shows made by theatre maker Eva Line de Boer [Breda, 1988] deal with seeing and with being seen. Zeventien is the first in a series of Het Zuidelijk Toneel productions featuring non-professional actors. In 2016 Eva Line came to Boulevard with her show Dit gebeurt allemaal tegelijk (All of this is happening at once), which won her a BNG Bank New Theatre Makers award.
There are free shuttle busses available from the festivalsquare to the location of the show. These busses leave half an hour before the show starts.
