Unmistakeably personal and yet accessible to a wide audience. Dance maker Ryan Djojokarso manages to translate important social topics into playful and poignant performances with a healthy helping of humour and a down-to-earth light-heartedness. This time he takes his Surinam roots as a point of departure and the question, “faf a libi?” (how’s life?). Stories by people from Surinam who immigrated to the Netherlands at one point in their lives form the basis for the script. Their story of migration is brought to the stage through a storm of memories. From growing up in Surinam to the decision to emigrate, the trip, the arrival, the homesickness, acclimatizing, the feeling of loss… LIBI is a multidisciplinary biography with dance and live music in a large visual stage setting about the lives of migrants in the Netherlands.
