Our amazing alum Taka Taka (DAI, 2017) initiated The Closet, a brilliant initiative for youth aged 14 to 18 years old, that aims to foster a sense of belonging through the experimentation with costumes and drag. Take part in workshops by diverse performers and theatre educators with backgrounds ranging from art academies to the club scene starting from 15th of April. As a queer educator, Taka Taka highlights the need for spaces beyond traditional activities, stating: While there are many places for kids to play football in The Netherlands, there are hardly any spaces for them to experiment with costumes, wigs and makeup. DEADLINE: you are welcome to register until 8th of April 2024 !
