Storytelling Training breaking through Taboos

Extremisme, radicalisering en een absurde ontmoeting. In deze voorstelling maken we taboes bespreekbaar.

“In addition to the great amount of interactivity during the trainings, the most important thing is that I’ve realized how important storytelling is in our lives. We need to be able to tell our stories to be heard, which is healing, but also to inspire others.”

Even though we live in a liberal country, there are still persistent taboos. Those taboos can get in the way of someone’s personal development because someone feels they can’t be who they are. That is why it is important to make some “taboos” debatable, in the Netherlands and abroad, by having someone tell his or her own story.
