My Father Held A Gun

A passionate, storytelling show with live cinematic music about war and peace, acts of heroism, and the love for life. Winner of the Amsterdam Fringe Festival Gold Award 2017. Sahebdivani and Rodan combine a great sense of humor with the urge to tell sincere and meaningful stories. They take their audience on a trip through space and time. "When they start telling a story, the audience is listening so quietly that you could hear a pin drop"

Let Us Upgrade U: 'Don't Worry Be Yoncé (XS)' is an easy, step-by-step tutorial (beginner/intermediate/advanced) on how everyone can become Queen B.

De Fuut

By Bastiaan Vandendriessche - Belgian playwright. Winner of 'Best International Award' at Amsterdam Fringe 2017, Bastiaan Vandendriessche tells a Lolita-like story - a monologue of a charming persona with improper, dark desires. 

Not Somewhere Else

Monki’s debut performance colours outside the lines of the conventional circus genre. In just an hour, he manages to conjure up a uniquely personal universe in which he combines double pole acrobatics with spoken word, live music, video and a touch of madness. Monki is a character all on his own. He shares funny, sometimes moving, moments of his frustrations and fears about the way in which we live together. 'Not Somewhere Else' is an intimate and raw solo show that offers a look in to Monki’s chaotic and intriguing world. 

Mick Jagger is My Nightmare

With flailing arms, grotesque faces, and a lot of sweat, Dutch performer Marius Mensink attempts to exorcise the Rolling Stones' front man out of his own body. This intense physical performance was an immediate cult hit at Cape Town Fringe. Amsterdam Fringe Festival Silver Award Winner 2013/2014.
