The popular programme of talks at the Internationaal Theater Amsterdam on Leidseplein made a comeback last year with a tiny twist: they went back to their Amsterdam roots! City Talks offers a captivating outlook that delves into the intriguing realm of the present day! 

Let's talk about wealth inequality

While we witness economic growth on one hand, according to the recently published Armoedemonitor (Poverty Monitor, Onderzoek & Statistiek, Gemeente Amsterdam), wealth inequality in Amsterdam has increased. One in six households is struggling to make ends meet. In response to increased inequality, stimulating upward social mobility is high on research and policy agendas. But is changing policies enough?

City Talks: The Price We Pay is inspired by ITA Ensemble and Rebecca Frecknall’s Julie. Frecknall breathes new life into August Strindberg's Miss Julie (1888), bringing it into the 21st century. Themes of class and power, and the consequences of unbridled desires permeate the narrative.
