The Red Box

The Red Box

The Red Box is a play about the empowerment of prostitutes and their visibility throughout history. This is original text based on the lives of 4 important characters from past centuries. the women have overcome the barriers of discrimination, submission and slavery to exercise a true claim for space and rights in societies. the play is very interesting in Amsterdam amid the current debate over whether prostitution windows should remain part of the Red Light District landscape.  Many think they should be moved elsewhere and under other conditions. Meanwhile sex workers defend their right to stay in what they consider to be their space, like any other worker. Get The Red Box tickets from the Badhuis website.
