About this Event

“MATA HARI, don’t blindfold my eyes” is a theatrical monologue written by Carmen

Toledo about the life of the well-known exotic dancer Mata Hari, who was accused

of espionage during the First World War and shot for this cause at 41 years of age.

It focuses on the topic of using people and, more specifically, a woman, as a

scapegoat for political situations and vested interests.

It's a story of manipulation, abuse, power games and corrupt processes.

Any connection with what is still happening in the World a century later is mere


It's also the second theatrical project that Carmen Toledo writes and directs in

Amsterdam. The first was THE RED BOX, a performance about the visibility and

empowerment of prostitutes throughout History, thus continuing with the theme

of Women through the centuries, based on real characters.

Women must stop being anecdotal to be historical.

This play seeks to shed a little light on this process that has been going on for

centuries and is still not over.
