A week about stories and identity
Everyone has a story. Or rather: everyone has many stories. Other Stories will spend a week reflecting the relationship between stories and identity. The focus is on the stories of people whose search for identity produces no straightforward answers. Performances and presentations that make clear how important it is that we as human beings are able to tell and question our stories, as a fundamental part of who we are.

Where storytelling is often still associated with a form of art that looks at reality from a single perspective, Other Stories emphasizes the opposite: the ability to unravel reality in all its complexity while at the same time giving it meaning. This is crucial in our multicultural society, in which ‘identity’ is regularly open to discussion. Other Stories is therefore also about the impact of stories and storytelling as a political act. A week of performances, discussions, reflections and, of course, stories.
