Children's Theatre

Circus Factory

Catch and Throw Circus

Or how about learning to balance on a rope or a ball. Or hang upside down on the trapeze or learn to cycle on a unicycle. 
And don't forget to ask the circus teachers if they want to show a trick themselves.
The circus workshop takes place on the circus sail with contemporary circus music.
We can expand the circus with a juggling show or with a circus tent.

Arno Huibers Theatre Productions

As a clown and an actor, Arno has been making clown theatre from 1985 in which he distinguishes himself from the traditional clown's image with subtle and poetic humour. The appreciation for this is evident from the favourable critiques published by the international press. His clown takes him with his delicate form of humour into theatres and slums of South America, Indonesia, Europe and into his own theatre in his backyard. And now it brings him to you!

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.

Sonja Knoppers

Sonja Knoppers uses beautiful typewriters of yesteryear to enrich the lives of yourself and others. But you have to do something to do that: Typing!
Every person, young and old, has life wisdom. What wisdom would you like to share with the world? Or what is your wish to another human being? And what new wisdom will enrich your life?
Type your wish or wisdom 
Put it in the mailbox (give) 
And take your new wisdom (take)
The Typewriter stands for delightful typing fun at the atmospheric car. The various typewriters from the 70's type even more delicious by the matching disco music we play. Delicious nostalgia for the somewhat older generations, an interesting experience for the younger audience.
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)

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 rinkelbom kinder knutsel activiteit

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. 
It usually consisted of a stick where an ugly head was cut out and then hung with nutshells and other things that made noise.
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!!!
In one day, up to 250 Rink Bombs can be made, which can then be used by the children for a parade for example!
Or just for driving out bogeymen and other rabble. 

The Recycle Music Box

Geert builds instruments from recycled materials at every conceivable location. 

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. 
Geert builds the instruments himself in the life-size chest - also a beautiful decor. Around 250 to 300 instruments are made per half day. 
He builds five different models, all from recycled materials. 
The children can keep the musical instruments.
