How much influence does bureaucracy have on life in the neighbourhood? In this multicultural opera active community members, classical singers, dancers and musicians enter the labyrinth together. With help of the centuries-old myth of Ariadne they reflected on our society together and discussed a dilemma which affects us all: the labyrinth of bureaucracy. Featuring music and dance from all over the world and the heavenly arias of Claudio Monteverdi. The artists and newcomers of Makers Unite created the design for the stage set. Five community leaders from the Baarsjes: Ziba Amini, Kirsten Fiege, Lakhwinder Kaur, Nadia Kasmi and Juslene Nanga Nguele, shared their stories about the labyrinth of local legislation. Directed by Miranda Lakerveld, compositions by oud player Haytham Safia, vocalists Hanna van Rooijen and Mazen Alashkar, dance by Christian Guerematchi and Vanessa Felter, video animations by Fadi Nadrous, make-up by Najlaa Albaidoun, set design by Bassel Halabi, Abla el Bahrawy and Andranik Mkrtchyan.
