De Ruimte presents a special project by Resonate Productions – a theatrical radio-show on what it means to matter. The starting point is the intellectual undermining of women: the sexism on the mind and the soul and lack of interest in what they think, say, make or try to achieve in life.

As an audience-member, you are a guest in our radio-studio. Over the speakers, you hear the voices of fourteen women. They analyse the intellectual undermining, starting from their personal and professional experiences with sexism on the mind and soul. How does this influence your sense of self, your trust, the building of relationships, and eventually: the course of life?

The audience completes the investigation, when the musicians start interviewing them on the topics at hand. These interactions are carried by a new technique of improvising, in which the musicians support risky and honest conversations as they unfold.

Each performance of FOR REAL will be recorded* and released as a podcast-episode. By doing this, we create a sounding collection of your voices on what it means to matter: to have dignity, to feel understood and to be taken seriously.

Resonate Productions makes musical journalism by combining investigative journalism with lots of original music. Previous projects are Millennial History (Best of Human Interest Radio 2022, AIB, and Best Podcasts of 2022, Avery Trufelman), While We Live (Best of Classical Music 2020, NRC) and Wings & Roots. Artistic director Andrea Voets is undertaking a worldwide search into the question ‘how to feel safe’, with support of the selective Dutch grant FastForward. The home-base of Resonate Productions is De Balie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and Festival van Vlaanderen Mechelen, Belgium.
