Amenti Theatre Company & Shishani

On July 14, 2022, Motel Mozaïque will present a special double bill in a unique location: the Rotterdam dance collective Amenti Theater Company will play the new performance Lilith and singer-songwriter Shishani will give a solo performance at Het Podium, an impressive platform on the roof of Het Nieuwe Instituut! Only seats are available for this evening, tickets are now on sale via Ticketmaster.

Amenti Theater Company – Lilith

The Rotterdam dance collective Amenti Theater Company is no stranger to Motel Mozaïque. Their powerful dance performances Anima, Ayahuasca and Kali have been featured at our festivals before and artistic director Gil ‘The Grid’ Gomes Leal played a key role in our Liquid program in 2019. Their new performance Lilith premiered very successfully during last MOMO Festival and we are proud to present this performance again in a very special location.

Lilith is about the dark feminine, inspired by the experiences of the different women who play in the piece. The mythical figure Lilith symbolizes suppressed female energy and sexuality. The enormous power that women possess and that is suppressed by the world is the driving force behind this dance and music performance.



Shishani has been sailing for years between the Netherlands and Namibia, her native country. With her quartet Namibian Tales she explored the musical traditions of the San in the Kalahari desert. In 2019 she founded the band Miss Catharsis, which focuses on women of color. 

“For me, music is something much bigger than I am” Shishani recently said in an interview with 3voor12. That explains the activist undertone in all her work. ‘Can you see with your heart and look past preconceptions / Can you see my soul, past the labeling section’, she sings on her very first single Minority (2012), which was recently re-released. The song can also be found on her new EP Miss Catharsis, where she mixes soul, jazz, indie rock and the rhythms of the San.

Het Podium

Het Nieuwe Instituut is proud to present the program for Het Podium: an impressive platform on the roof of the institute. The striking pink installation with impressive external staircase was designed by the architectural firm MVRDV and is an extension of the exhibition MVRDVHNI, The Living Archive of a Studio. Het Podium is open from June 1 to August 17, 2022 and offers a unique opportunity to experience architecture, the city, the Museum Park and the institute from a completely new perspective.
