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.
