How free are you to be free? The answer to that question is not the same for everyone. Free to be Free is the latest site-specific performance by the Sites of Memory Foundation about freedom and resistance. 

Free to be Free takes the audience along stories and places that are connected to the colonial history in Amersfoort, Deventer and Utrecht. We can learn a lot from the freedom fighters of the past and from the people who are fighting for freedom today. How was freedom fought then and now? What forms of revolt and resistance are known? In this performance, stories about freedom and resistance in the past, present and future come to life through dance, theatre, poetry and music.
