PRODUCTIONS

KRUIT! – 2015 | In 1817 hundreds of rebels led by the Moluccan folk hero Pattimura stormed the Dutch fort Duurstede on the island of Saparua. The rebels slaughtered every single person except for the 6 year old residents son. Jakarta Post – ‘The dialog of Pattimura, Jean Lubbert and Risakotta can be translated to the present, where violence still occurs and reconciliation remains a challenge’.

WESTERLING – 2018 | ‘Westerling’ portrays the life of the Moluccan ex-soldier Mozes under the command of the Dutch captain Raymond Westerling. Westerling was one of the most controversial figures during the Indonesian war for independence. The main characters draw a piece of shared history by sharing their personal perspectives and motives.

LAGU-DUA – 2018 | The first generation of Moluccans in the Netherlands expressed their feelings in well-known songs and poems a.k.a ‘lagu dan pantun’. During ‘Lagu-Dua’ actors, dancers and musicians present a fresh take on these popular traditionals. The intergenerational formation presents a soulful journey in the shape of live music, dance and spoken word.

 

OVER

DeltaDua ontwikkelt muziektheater dat de Molukse cultuur in al haar kleuren vangt. Sinds de start – meer dan 35 jaar geleden – raakten oprichters Anis de Jong en Nel Lekatompessy geïnspireerd door levens- en volksverhalen, mythes en creatieve makers in deze context.

Middels producties en creatieve workshops – in binnen- en buitenland – is DeltaDua er op uit theatermakers, musici, acteurs, dansers, schrijvers en ontwerpers te inspireren en verbinden om zo bij te dragen aan een meer inclusieve en hedendaagse creatieve stem binnen de Molukse cultuur en daarbuiten.
