|Pulp-o-rama||Film and music||Casa Cranca I Hoogstraat 37A||Emerge yourself in the crackling sound and travel back in time with the 16 mm film projector. The short informative, nostalgic, moving and hilarious movie fragments can learn us about the past.

|Goed (be)doel(d)||Theater||Casa Cranca II Hoogstraat 37A||We hebben een verantwoordelijkheid. Of hebben we behoefte aan een verantwoordelijkheid? Theatergroep Troubamour portretteert in deze dynamische voorstelling de drang om al dan niet te helpen in de context van de vluchtelingenproblematiek in Europa.

|Pussy Tutorials||Cabaret||Over-Engh Churchillweg 1||Izabella Finch a.k.a Priestess Pussilicious, explores new-trends of female selfempowerment, stories of sexual awakening, menstrual painting and ovulation mania; the contemporary woman’s dilemma of attaining holistic spiritual growth and studying eco-feminism, while dating men who watch porn, facing her everyday Mooncup(R) realities and making yogurt from her yeasty vajajay. This enticing performer smoothly weaves together dynamic youtube-style skecthes, witty self-composed songs with active audience interactions, to create an empassioned comedy-cabaret. She entertains, informs, shocks and pleasures her audience till the Capitalist-Patriarchy melts into coconut oil lube-to be on stage.|
|Sauerkraut||Theater||Onder de Magnolia Nassauweg 13||We foeteren, klagen en jammeren. Soms binnensmonds, soms in grote letters, soms in precies 140 tekens. Sauerkraut is een onderzoek van Laura Vroom waarin ze frustraties verzameld over ons leven in de stad. Om ze bloot te leggen en tegen het licht te houden. Omdat verandering misschien pas kan beginnen bij het erkennen van onze problemen. Om te relativeren, te troosten en omdat het zo enorm kan opluchten.|

|Aone: Unknown Stories from Unknown Places||Storytelling||de Witte Wilma Wilhelminaweg 24||For many people in Southwest Maluku (Indonesia) and Lautém (Timor-Leste) story telling is the only link they have with the past.

This performance highlights the often concealed importance of women in local society by telling three consecutive stories from three different islands: ‘Wuni the Skivvy’, ‘The Mean King’s Granddaughter’, ‘Wuni and the Octopus Witch’. Aone is a member of the Tilupun-Slaupun Clan on Leti Island and lectures Southeast Asian linguistics at Leiden University.|
