4 t/m 6 August 2017

Two men. One is an artist. The other a doorman, desperately trying to find himself. He wants to keep the artist from performing at all cost. All is fair in this war, because the idea is that nothing happens in this show. Which is no easy feat; after all, before you know it, you’ve made a joke. The people from Theater Artemis aren’t so sure they will succeed either: “We can’t make any promises. But can we keep our word?”

Twelve years ago, Jetse Batelaan [Almere, 1978] stole the hearts of theatre audiences and the press with this show. It was his first play for children, made with Tg. Max. “Monty Python for children”, people murmured. “Either he’s bonkers or he’s a genius”, the jury of the Gold Cricket Awards said. A visually rich and slightly absurdist show that has become part of the Dutch theatre canon.

There are free shuttle busses available from the festivalsquare to the location of the show. These busses leave half an hour before the show starts.
