Stam, V. (May 2018) Theatre School of Resistance. Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In the Theatre School of Resistance, a participatory theatre-research project with second-generation Black and Muslim youth in the Netherlands, we spent 14 weeks covering topics of belonging, citizenship, racism, Islamophobia and resistance. This video is a synopsis of our final show, performed in the spirit of Forum Theatre. The audience was invited to “rehearse resistance” with the cast by giving suggestions for what could be done differently to improve the outcome of the scene.
