In Between Time – Bijlmer Jail
In Between Time was performed in early 2018 in one of the vacant towers of the Bijlmerbajes. A journey through open-air spaces and cells where time seems to stand still. Five theater makers / asylum seekers from Tunisia, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Somalia and five makers from the Netherlands welcome you in the ‘in between time’, at the place where they start their new lives.
You will meet different makers on every floor in the Bijlmer tower. In an old prison cell you can experience genuine stories from very close by, the abandoned corridors come to life with poetic images and music. By dreaming out loud they create new memories and their lives start moving again.
