Exhibition: Fashion Statements @ Amsterdam Museum
Apr 30 – Sep 9 all-day

Tiny waists and (hence) corsets are on show at the Amsterdam Museum where the 18th and 19th century costume collection is given an airing. What are these clothes telling us about the conventions of the time and their effects on the wearers? And are our modern-day equivalents equally restrictive and prescriptive in their own way? A number of designers have taken the costumes as an inspiration and created their own. Fashion Statements is on until September 9

Open-air Theatre in Wassenaar @ Raadhuis de Paauw (Raadhuislaan 22) in Wassenaar.
Aug 30 – Aug 31 all-day
Open-air Theatre in Wassenaar @ Raadhuis de Paauw (Raadhuislaan 22) in Wassenaar.

Open-air theatre in Wassenaar
Enjoy an open-air theatre experience from 29 to 31 August and 1 September with 2 fabulous performances by the Illyria theatre company. With productions of Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’ on the beautiful grounds of Raadhuis de Paauw in Wassenaar.

The award-winning British Shakespearean open-air touring theatre company will perform ‘The Tempest’, Shakespeare’s raucously funny comedy, on 29 and 30 August. On 31 August and 1 September they will perform ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’, an exciting adventure for children.

‘The Tempest’
The magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda. With the assistance of Ariel, a powerful air spirit he keeps in servitude, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island. Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero, until Prospero learns that Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy. What will be greater? His thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?

The play, believed to be the last that Shakespeare wrote single-handedly, is lyrical, thought-provoking and raucously funny. More than 400 years after it was written it still has the capacity to surprise.

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’
Like all the stories in the towering literary classic One Thousand and One Nights, this play is packed with cliffhangers, larger-than-life characters and laughs galore. Young Ali Baba stumbles across an enchanted cave when he overhears the magic words that open it: ‘Open Sesame!’. Inside the cave he finds untold amounts of gold and jewels, and takes some of it home. But when the Robber King comes looking for the missing treasure supported by an army of 40 angry thieves, will he and his family survive?

This is the perfect summer fun for thieves and vagabonds aged 5+.

About Illyria
Illyria was created in 1991 by Oliver Gray. Illyria’s refreshing and clear adaptations of the classics have inspired and entertained audiences ever since in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, the United States and Canada. The company has won international acclaim for its lively, innovative approach to Shakespeare’s plays and its high quality shows for families.

More information about the touring company can be found on the website of Illyria.

Authentic Elizabethan experience
lllyria has developed a unique Shakespearean style. It achieves the seemingly impossible by performing Shakespeare’s plays unabridged, with only a handful of actors, a few props and no scenery. The productions are slick, physical and imaginative in execution, being inspired by the performance techniques of Elizabethan touring troupes.

For an authentically Elizabethan experience, Illyria performs Shakespeare’s masterpiece on its own Globe-like stage, in the open air, against the backdrop of the beautiful mansion. The shows go on rain or shine!

Performance times
‘The Tempest’ will be performed at 19.30 hrs. on Thursday, 29 August and Friday, 30 August. ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’ will be performed at 15.00 hrs. on Saturday, 31 August and 14.00 hrs. on Sunday, 1 September. Performances take place at Raadhuis de Paauw (Raadhuislaan 22) in Wassenaar.

The gardens open 2 hours prior to the show and catering is available on site. Bring your own chair, a picnic hamper and perhaps some rain gear, but no umbrellas are allowed. Please note: Rain does not stop the performances!

Atlantikwall Museum open on Sundays only @ Scheveningen
Sep 1 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.

This is where my passion around the topic of Rest is coming from! I know very well how busy lifestyle and continuous stress impacts physical and mental wellbeing.
