STOF symbolizes the rich collection of personal experiences, emotions, and thoughts which creates a colorful and versatile whole. An evening that makes you reflect on the past, the present, and the future. Join us on a special and unforgettable journey on Het Vliegende Tapijt.
Het Vliegende Tapijt
Het Vliegende Tapijt, a two-year art project that blends textile forms with theatrical performances and digital interpretations. The story of Mina, who came to Rotterdam from Morocco at the age of 23 in 1978 with her husband as a migrant worker, is the starting point. The title refers to her situation. Het Vliegende Tapijt is a metaphor for exploring time and space, and finding one's way in the complex weave of identity, with all its social, economic, and personal components. In Mina's life - and that of many other women who recognize themselves in her situation - textile forms and handicrafts are familiar social anchors. During handicrafts, the stories are told and the threads are spun of everyone's flying carpet, between here and there, then and now.
‘Krachtzakje’ as an entrance ticket
To make theatre accessible in a creative way to a larger audience, Women Connected has introduced the 'Krachtzakje'. On this bag, you embroider your own portrait and add something personal. A unique concept, with which Women Connected allows people to pay for their admission ticket with creativity and be a part of the performance.
