About the performance
Building from the big success of her play, Woke in late January in The Hague, the Fringe First award winner Apphia Campbell brings Black is the Color of My Voice to the Netherlands for the first time!
This acclaimed and thought-provoking play with music was originally produced in Shanghai (by Play the Spotlight Theatre), where Campbell worked as one of the city’s most-in demand performers. Inspired by the life and civil rights activism of the legendary Nina Simone, the story follows the fictional character of Mena Bordeaux, a successful jazz singer seeking salvation after the untimely death of her father, intertwining her political engagement and devastating events such as the Alabama church bombing and death of Dr Martin Luther king. Sitting alone in her room, she reflects on her journey through life which started as a young piano prodigy, destined for a life in the services of the church, to soon becoming a renowned jazz vocalist.

Atlantikwall Museum open on Sundays only @ Scheveningen
Nov 24 all-day

The Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen feature several original German bunkers from the Second World War. The figurehead of the Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen is the command bunker in the complex Widerstandsnest 318 (Verteidigungsstab Badhuisweg). A man-bunker has also been set up in this complex and a toilet bunker has been made accessible. On regular open days it is possible to visit the command bunker, and there are volunteers ready to provide information and answer questions.

Widerstandsnest 318 Scheveningen
The primary museum location of the foundation is an authentically furnished command bunker of the type 608 (Bataillons-, Abteilungs- oder Regiments-Gefechtsstand). From this bunker and nearby villas in the Second World War the military command of Stützpunkgruppe Scheveningen was conducted by the occupying forces. The bunker is largely original and gives you the unique experience of a tangible past. There are also original historical objects of German, British, Canadian and American forces on display.

Man’s bunker
In the adjacent man-bunker bunker of the type 622 (Doppelgruppenunterstand) on the Badhuisweg there is a ‘time capsule’: one of the two lounges is furnished with exclusively unrestored objects. You get the impression that the bunker has remained untouched since the end of the Second World War. In reality, most bunkers in the Netherlands were looted after the war and stripped of all valuable parts. The other room is an exhibition space for photographs, art and historical objects.

Accessibility
The bunkers on the Badhuisweg are located at numbers 119-133, next to De Boshut coffee house. The museum is accessible by tram line 9. Get off at the Cremerweg stop, from there it is a two minute walk to the bunker. Car is free to park within walking distance of the museum

Entrance is 4 Euro (cash) and 2 Euro for children until 12 years.

Amsterdam Light Festival @ Amsterdam City Centre
Nov 28 2019 – Jan 19 2020 all-day

The Amsterdam Light Festival is set to return on 28 November 2019, running until 19 January 2020, (literally) putting Amsterdam’s beautiful city centre and its canals in the limelight.

What many people may not know, is that the light art installations of Amsterdam Light Festival are exclusively made for the festival. From an artwork in the masts of the VOC ship ‘de Amsterdam’ to the works that are harnessed above the Herengracht – they were all created with a specific location in mind.

Amsterdam Light Festival strives to create innovative and unique works of art, which is why the festival works together with a host of talented artists, architects and designers. They submitted their trailblazing ideas on account of a worldwide Call for Concepts, after which a carefully curated jury made a selection of the best ideas. These concepts were then realized by Amsterdam Light Festival.

Maybe reserve a spot on a boat to get a tour of the best light route. https://amsterdamlightfestival.com/en/book-a-tour
