On Friday, February 23, Marie Lotte Hagen and Nydia van Voorthuizen from the well-known podcast DAMN HONEY will present a program about rebellion in the Stadsschouwburg in Nijmegen. A crazy Friday afternoon drink, on the occasion of the Remember the Rebel exhibition that can be seen in the Schouwburg from February 8 to March 3.
Every protest movement starts with that lone individual who sees through the status quo. While everyone thinks it is 'very normal', the rebel sees that things can be better.
DAMN HONEY discusses the importance of rebellion in these times, and talks to one of the rebels from the exhibition, Jerry Afriyie, about his fight against Zwarte Piet. How did he come to realize what almost no one did for years? There is also music by…
Time: February 23, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Later in the evening, at 11 p.m., Goodbye_porn from performing arts company Teddy's last ride will play.

Short dance scenes highlight sexual experiences, desires and shame: an exciting combination of party and theater in which the audience dances together with the four performers to self-written club beats. Afterwards there is an exclusive afterparty hosted by Kisskiss
About DAMN, HONEY
DAMN, HONEY is an accessible feminist platform, founded by Marie Lotte Hagen and Nydia van Voorthuizen. Their starting point: being able to do what you want. They convey that message in a weekly podcast, Instagram account and their books. Marie Lotte and Nydia also have a lot to learn and take people along in their own search for what (intersectional) feminism means to them.
About Remember the Rebel
Remember the Rebel is a traveling pop-up exhibition about rebellion that travels through Europe. The installation portrays illustrious rebels of the present and recent past from all over Europe. The rebels have been depicted by artist Mart Veldhuis in life-size portraits in which the visitor is always presented with two situations: the status quo that the rebel is fighting against, and the situation desired by the rebel. The visitor receives special glasses: if you look through a different lens, reality changes before your eyes.
Part of the installation is the game Rebel with a Cause, an Arcade Game in which visitors must defeat the Dominant Dictator as a rebel. The game, based on the classic WonderBoy, lets you experience which forces can threaten democracy and provides tools for critical thinking.
