The Keti Koti festival takes place every year to celebrate the abolition of slavery in the Netherlands. During the Keti Koti festival in 2008, Theatre Embassy built the Slavery Labyrinth for one day. The labyrinth was composed of seven rooms and led the audience in small groups along the various aspects of the Dutch history of slavery. During this walk, short monologues were played, playful installations were on display and one could give a salute to Barack Obama.
