Neverending Stories | Beschaving onder de loep

Neverending Stories | Beschaving onder de loep

Bernadette Heiligers , Nifa Ansano, Dimitri Cloose, Renske Pin

 

 

 

Saturday December 18
5.00 PM
Entrance ANG. 15,00

 De Curaçaose schrijver Bernadette Heiligers is zaterdag 18 december de hoofdgast van de eerste aflevering van de Neverending Stories podcastserie die op Curaçao wordt opgenomen. De opname kan door een beperkt publiek worden bijgewoond.

In deze aflevering van de feministische boekentalkshow Neverending Stories gaat Nifa Ansano in gesprek met schrijver Bernadette Heiligers en tafelgasten Dimitri Cloose en Renske Pin over hoe mensen omgaan met normen binnen een beschaving. Is beschaving verbonden aan het besef en aanzien van de ik zoals ik dit zie? Is de lijn van wat wel en niet mag fluïde?

Het vertrekpunt is het boek ‘Van zo ver gekomen’ van Bernadette Heiligers. Waarin de tienjarige, Dominicaanse Dini na een tragisch ongeluk alleen achterblijft bij een gezin op Curaçao. Niets is echter wat het lijkt. ‘Het duurde een poosje voordat ik begreep dat de scheidingslijn tussen goede en slechte mensen niet meer is dan een stippellijn.’ Zij verzet zich tegen de wereld en zij wil zich met alle kracht over alle grenzen heen zetten.

De tafelgasten nemen ‘Van zo ver gekomen’ onder de loep en duiken in de vraag ‘Is het een hopeloze gedachte dat de gekronkelde stippellijnen van beschaving ooit recht getrokken zullen worden? Welke rol kunnen schrijvers spelen in een doorbraak voor z’n proces?

Neverending stories is een grensoverschrijdend inclusieve talkshow van ROSE stories in samenwerking met deBuren. Een talkshow voor een nieuw en cultureel-divers publiek, niet alleen uit Nederland, maar ook België en de Nederlandse Antillen. In de talkshow worden recent verschenen boeken besproken die een nieuw licht werpen op thematiek die relevant is voor de superdiverse samenleving. Centraal staan de verhalen van biculturele schrijvers, met een focus op vrouwelijke schrijvers, als antwoord op de zeer actuele sociaal-ethische en maatschappelijke behoefte aan authentieke en van binnenuit vertelde verhalen die bijdragen aan betere representatie van de samenleving.

Voor de eerste keer wordt Neverending Stories op Curaçao opgenomen en u kunt erbij zijn. Op zaterdag 18 december van 17:00 tot 19:00 uur bij Landhuis Bloemhof (inloop vanaf 16:30 uur). Kaartjes kosten 15 gulden en zijn verkrijgbaar bij Landhuis Bloemhof. (Slechts 40 kaarten beschikbaar).

Neverending Stories is een initiatief van ROSE Stories, in samenwerking met deBuren, Writers Unlimited, Landhuis Bloemhof en Watershed en wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door Literatuur Vlaanderen, Nederlands Letterenfonds, Fonds 21 en het Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds.

Kafe Literaio Greaseman

Event

Kafé Literario 'Greaseman'
Honoring 2021 Cola Debrot Prize recipient for Literature
Philip 'Fifi' Rademaker 

 

 

 

Thursday December 2
7.00 PM
Entrance ANG. 10,00

Philip 'Fifi' Rademaker (1944) received the Cola Debrot prize for a small, but extremely refined and special oeuvre consisting of two collections of poems, a short story collection and essays. The Council of Culture made special mention of his limericks and sharp contributions to the correct way of speaking and writing Papiamentu.

'Greaseman', the title of the literary café dedicated to this literary artist captures the versatility of Rademaker as a person. 'Greaseman' refers to the almost impossible task of capturing this artist in one art discipline. In addition to being a poet and author, Rademaker is also a publicist, actor, director, street philosopher, politician without a party, painter, caricaturist and photographer.

In the literary café on December 2, however, the focus will largely be on his literary work. The program begins at 7pm and will open with a tribute to his work performed by fellow writers, poets, and performers. After the break Rademaker will be interviewed and will recite from his oeuvre. And as regular visitors to Bloemhof's literary cafés know, this evening will end with sharp closing remarks by three wise 'men.'

Ralph Winedt, Crisèn Schorea, Lucille Berry Haseth, Roland Colastica, Nifa Ansano, Bernadette Heiligers, Jeroen Heuvel, Laura Quast, Diana Lebacs, Marlon Reina and Elodie Heloise are your hosts and will be presenting the ninth Kafé Literario 'Greaseman.'

Literary oeuvre
In 2000 Bos di Buriku, a collection of 37 poems was published and republished in 2008 in a special edition for secondary schools in Curaçao. Together with Sinaya R. Wolfert, he made the photo book Otrobanda, a timeless poem of Curaçao, about the neighborhood Rademaker loves so much.

In 2015 another collection of poems Pa Steru Superfisie was published and in the same year the short story collection Di gaña gaña!  A new publication with a collection of Limericks is in the pipeline.

La Dama Blanca 
La Dama Blanca - Rina Penso - cherishes the past. What’s life worth without her memories? That’s where she finds him, her great love. In the music of "Te Busco" he shines in his role. She stands before him, dressed in white, and he kisses her, a kiss that still burns on her lips.
Her butler Sancho - Giovanni Abath - is determined to pull "his" Dama Blanca back to the present, but her ex-lover haunts the house. In the music, in his photos, in her mind ... Francis is a ghost that Sancho cannot put his finger on.
"La Dama Blanca" is a filmed adaptation of the eponymous play. A classic rendition in which the longing for love is the central theme. This Short Film is a project of Guus de Sain, as Director and Producer and Hester Jonkhout as Director of Photography and Editor. Actors are Rina Penso and Giovanni Abath.
