            25min, Germany 2012 (language: english, italian, german, spanish, portuguese, with english subtitles) I Madalena International - Berlin 2012 Theatre is not enough ... one must act in real life. From the 11th to the 16th of September, 2012; The Madalena International Encounter was held in Berlin as an aesthetic experience which included the participation of 27 women, Theatre of the Oppressed practitioners, from different countries of Latin America, Africa and Europe. After the meeting, we denounced through the Internet the experience of gender violence that eight of our participants suffered at YAAM, an important point of the Afro culture in Berlin. "At dawn on Sunday, September 16th, these women faced sexist and violent attitude of some of the security team members. On the evening of that Sunday, a group of thirty people, men and mostly women went to the YAAM to express the rejection of this treatment, and to demand a public excuse besides concrete actions. We were denied communication with any of those responsible; the contact with the security team deepened the conflict. " On September 21st, we received a message from a representative of the board of YAAM requesting a phone contact. The phone conversation made possible a personal meeting on Sunday, September 23rd, between representatives of the Madalena International, the board of YAAM and its security staff. We required from YAAM the recognition and excuse for the violence and sexism perpetuated by the security staff. We also asked YAAM’s management to take concrete actions that would prevent that these types of situations happen again and demonstrate that they will not be tolerated carrying serious consequences. Finally, we proposed the mutual withdrawal of complaints made to the police. Despite not having the same perception of the events of September 16th, during the meeting, the representatives of YAAM recognized the violence and sexism, regretted and apologized for what happened and pledged to take appropriate action. As members of the Madalena International, and as activists of Theatre of the Oppressed, we believe in dialogue and cooperation; at the same time, we know that the struggle to overcome patriarchy must be continuous. Therefore, we will be attentive to the development of this case. We also want to express our outrage at the ongoing gentrification process in the vicinity of YAAM, which proposes the appropriation of another area of the city for the exclusive use of the rich. PS: In the sequence, we publish the statement of YAAM on this case. Gemeinsame Erklärung von YAAM Wie teilweise schon bekannt geworden ist, gab es frühen Morgen des 16.9.2012 – Sonntag, um 5Uhr – einen Streit an der Tür des YAAM. Die Ereignisse der Nacht lassen sich nicht mehr vollständig rekonstruieren. Zugleich ist das YAAM zu der Überzeugung gelangt, dass es seitens eines Türstehers zu einem Fehlverhalten gekommen ist. Hier sind elementare Grundprinzipien der Arbeit des YAAM verletzt worden, hierfür können wir uns nur entschuldigen. Das YAAM steht seit vielen Jahren für Gewaltfreiheit, Anti-Sexismus und Anti-Rassismus – und wenn aus unseren Reihen jemand gegen diese Prinzipien verstößt, muss dies Konsequenzen haben. In einem sehr konstruktiven Gespräch mit den beteiligten Frauen haben wir daher beschlossen, dass der betreffende Türsteher, obwohl wir uns mehr als 10 Jahre lang auf seine Dienste verlassen konnten, nicht mehr im YAAM beschäftigt wird. Beide Seiten werden die Anzeigen bei der Polizei zurückziehen. Das YAAM prüft darüber hinaus auf Anregung von Kuringa, ob nicht öfter Frauen an der Tür als Security eingesetzt werden können. YAAM, Kuringa und Madalena International haben in dem Gespräch festgestellt, dass es viele Ziele gibt, für die sich alle Beteiligten gleichermaßen einsetzen. Wir wollen daher im Dialog bleiben, um künftig auch gemeinsame Aktionen zu den Themen Sexismus und Rassismus durchzuführen.
