The Red Box
THE RED BOX is a play about the visibility and empowerment of prostitutes throughout history. An original text based on the lives of 4 important characters from past centuries, who overcome the barriers of discrimination, submission and slavery to exercise a true claim for space and rights in societies.
In Amsterdam, currently amid the debate over whether prostitution windows should remain part of the Red Light District landscape, or whether they should be moved elsewhere and under other conditions, sex workers defend their right to stay in what they consider to be their space, like any other worker.
