'Jamaica, a year ago' - Lara Verheijden / 'Clive: my holiday lover in Jamaica' - Amanda van Hesteren + Aftertalk BsB (20:00) 

Filmmakers Lara Verheijden and Amanda van Hesteren went to Jamaica in search of a non-Western culture that appealed to them, wondering how they would relate to it, as Western women. The controversial result of their adventures can be seen in two frank video diaries. A documentary series about friendship, sensuality, relationships and sex from the perspective of a (Western) woman.

Ariah Lester - 'White[Ariane]' (21:30)

ARIANE is the daughter that Nancy (a south american woman) never had. Nancy wrote a diary for ARIANE while she was inside her womb without knowing that she would be a boy. 28 years after the birth, Nancy crossed over the Atlantic to reveal the existence of the diary to her son.

A piece about metamorphosis and shading, something more like a long poem; in between a concert and a theatre piece, a one-man-show-opera and a burlesque act created in collaboration with light designer Katinka Marac.

ARIAH LESTER takes the words of his mother’s diary and creates songs out of them. A space of (in)betweenness: monstrosity / beauty, femininity/ masculinity, light / darkness, ARIANE / LESTER / ARIAH.

A curse needs to be broken.
A piece of the family tree needs to be cut and taken-off the earth by it’s root.
The garden of House needs to be cleaned and watered so that the roses can grow.
I’m the hero, I’m the healer, I’m the traveler.
I exiliated myself to the biggest journey of my life. I went far.
I crossed oceans and lands of mystery.
A journey so far out: to go to the deepest space within.
I forgot my tongue and my color, I became something else, a caricature, a sketch, a monster… to find… myself.
