Zid Theatre


Europe, The Netherlands, Amsterdam

Zid Theatre in Amsterdam has been experimenting with ideas around reworking classical plays together with community residents into impressive productions. Instead of raising the community to the level of the great classics, they attempt to raise classics to the level of a community by writing new roles, creating new characters, and adapting contexts and plots to local realities. They have achieved this by collaborating with the prestigious repertory company Toneelgroep Amsterdam. For ICAF 2014, Zid presented From the Rooftops of the World with a diverse cast of Rotterdam citizens. The show, which deals with people’s frustrations about politics and their dreams for the future, is inspired by Shakespeare’s Roman tragedies. In the last phase of the preparations, Zid will be assisted by a team from Cornerstone.
