Arno Huibers De reizende clownswagen Kindervoorstelling

Arno Huibers Theatre Productions

As a clown and an actor, Arno has been making clowstheatre from 1984 in which he distinguishes himself from the traditional clown's image with subtle and poetic humor. The appreciation for this is evident from the favourable critiques published by the international press. His clown takes him with his delicate form of humor into theatres and slums of South America, Indonesia, Europe and into his own theatre in his backyard. And now it brings him to you!

The Traveling Clown-caravan

The very last season! Can be booked one last time. 
The traditional, restored circus-caravan ensures the perfect setting in which Arno Huibers presents his theatre program Clowns Gift.

Clowns Gift

There is a big present on the stage. A dignified, bald gentleman with a red tuft of hair plays music. And there is another clown, not just a regular one but a fun one! Before the gift is unpacked, there's time for a lot of clown jokes with a musical garbage can, a living broom, with silent drums, the biggest baby, the most beautiful bubble in the world, opera and so much more... And the clown gift? We are happy to unpack it for you with an endearing smile to a guffaw.

Circus Theatre Vladimir

Vladimir Adrift

Once he has slept in, Vladimir is a cheeky clown who does not hesitate to fool the public. Laid off by the audience, he gets so winded up that nothing can stop him. He expects full commitment from his beloved buddies in the show, three frogs and a chicken that he was just able to save from a diner. Public participation is also essential for the success of his acrobatic antics.
A dynamic performance with music, unicycles, animals and balance art. 
Het Licht in de Duisternis

Het Vermaak

The Light in the Darkness

An interactive theatre show in which children can make their own candles. 
Professor Dombidoo and his charming assistant Ladilaa are inventors of the craziest things.
This is accompanied by the necessary noises and flashes of light. 
So much so that the neighbours - three witches - have shrouded the whole world in darkness with a magical spell. 
This is why professor Dombidoo makes candles from his cauldrons with magical candle wax with children all over the world.
This is the only way to expel the curse of the witches and to make sure the night becomes day again. 




The Paintball Studio

Look at the masterpieces that are created in the paintball studio! Not with a brush and pallet, but with paintball guns! A house, a ball, a plane or perhaps something more seasonal? It does not matter what you choose. At the paintball studio it is always a sensation to create art!!!

Martin Forget Circus van de dieren straattheater

Martin Forget

Circus of the Animals

Mart-O is a clown. He has been working for a large circus for a very long time. He sells the tickets, he cleans up the elephant rolls and takes good care of the animals. And yet Mart-O wants more: he wants to perform in the circus tent. Solo! He would like to do an audition but Mart-O suffers from stage fright: trembling knees, a fast beating heart, sweaty hands... how can you, as an talented artist, get rid of that nasty fear of the audience? Maybe the audience can help him with this... In this performance much attention has been paid to the set, the costumes and the attributes. By using technical gadgets, things on the stage come to life as it were. This gives the Circus of the Animals a special atmosphere. 


Who, Who, Oui!?

Martin is a stranger wherever he goes. In his search for who he is, he turns into a musician, a cyclist, a tennis player... What does he want to be?! How can he become someone?! From this total chaos a new identity finally emerges, in which every child recognizes themselves. An exciting story with short components. During the play, absurdity becomes reality. Martin plays with themes as friendship, self-delusion, uncertainty and dreams.
(from 4 to 12 years old)


The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show is a combination of absurd mime sketches and hilarious clown sketches. 
Improvisation and contact with the audience are the power of this show. What is invisible becomes reality, and what is impossible becomes possible. Let him carry you away in this immersive, moving and funny theatre show.


Bully, Stop It!

Educational School Presentation
Martijn is doing well again. He no longer has a stomachache nor a headache. He can sleep well again and he can finally go back to school with pleasure. Martijn has not been ill, but he was bullied. But why??? He doesn't know that himself. Martijn is an ordinary boy: not too thin, not too fat, not too tall, not too small, not too beautiful, not too ugly, not a hero and not a weakling. But still: the children from his other school thought Martijn was different and that is why he was bullied. It got so bad that he moved out of the school. 
"Bully, Stop It!" is a show that wants to show how much it can hurt and what you feel when you are bullied. This story is interspered with light-hearted, humerous skits. The show shows that if you are bullied, you should not keep it still. That it helpes if you talk about your problem with your parents and teachers. You can be who you are, just like everyone else! But the performance continues. He also talks about the bullies, the followers and the ones that stay silent. Who are they and how can they chance the situation?

De dwerg kindertheater

The Dwarf

The dwarf arrives home to his underground hole and discoveres that his tame crow is not in his cage. When he finds a golden egg in the abandoned nest, he decides to hatch it himself. The egg gets bigger and bigger and then it breaks open. A tiny chick is born and the dwarf has his hands full. He is completely absorbed in his task as educator of the foster chick. He comes face to face with a pathetic old dragon to protect the birdie. He plays tag with a butterfly who comes to look at the little one. Finally he feels like a real bird, when he turns out to be able to whistle like only the most beautiful songbirds can. 
Jean-Marie Bevort presents a dwarf in this performance. On the basis of this enchanting figure he takes his audience to a fairytale like world where nature comes to life. As you would expect from a dwarf, he speaks the language in which all the inhabitants of nature originally understood each other. Because of his penetrating imagination he knows how to convey this to the audience, without speaking a word that you know.

KEI KindEnInstrument

The Rink Bomb

The Rink Bomb arose from the sound makers that were being used by rain dancers, shamans and medicine men to chase away the evil spirits.

The KEI Foundation has breathed new life into this original instrument, but then with broomsticks.

A teddy bear, picked out by the child itself, will be mounted on the broomstick. The child can decorate the Rink Bomb with materials provided by the KEI Foundation, like keys, CDs, beads, etcetera. About 200 different items!!!

Or just for driving out bogeymen and other rabble.

He prepares them in such a way that the instruments almost appear from the box like magic. 
A bit of juggling and a final touch and the children can try and play the instrument on their own.

He builds five different models, all from recycled materials.

Solo Simpel with Clown Zapp

An indoor performance played in two parts: in the first part Ruut van Hoofd will dress himself up in a comical way into Clown Zapp. Then the 40-minute show begins. (This form is ideal for small children: the fear of clowns will be solved in a pleasant way)
There he is: Clown Zapp! With a suitcase. Entirely absorbed in the music of the brass band, he has strayed. When he asks the audience: "What are you doing?", they will respond with "we're watching!"
In the end, Zapp ends up on stage and performs a silly show with everything that he can use. He cleans up newspapers in his own way, argues with an elastic band and he tumbles across the floor. Luckily he makes use of the children in the audience, otherwise everything would hit the fan.
