Based on first-hand accounts and experiences, “Fighting Ladies” offers nine women who were active in the northern part of the Westhoek during the First World War a living platform. The women share their stories on four different stages: Marie and Irène Curie (Veurne), the two Angels of Pervijze Elsie and Mairi, Mietje Boeuf and Madame Tack (active as soldier mothers along the Yser), Queen Elisabeth (active in De Panne) and Käthe Kollwitz. The Lady of the Blankaart Castle and her nieces feature as usherettes. The charming Blankaart Castle grounds provide the backdrop for the theatre walks, which are translated digitally and simultaneously into French, German and English.Location: De Blankaart - DiksmuideThis exhibition is part of a series of exhibitions about several iconic women during WWI.
