The Roaring Twenties
Sat 4 Jun ’2220:00 - 21:50Hertog Jan Zaal
An evening like never before! An anniversary performance that revives the glory days of Släpstick as delicately as it will elegantly. Bathe in the splendor of the Jugendstil banquet hall and revel in the decadence of the upper class…
And yes, what if the table legs are a little shaky? So what, if the organ is about to collapse? What if the chandelier hangs on a few loose bolts? Everything works fine! Everything is completely under control! Absolutely nothing can go wrong! Nothing can stand in the way of this thunderous anniversary evening! So, put on your party clothes and hit the red carpet. The Roaring Twenties is coming to the theater, and you are cordially invited.
Släpstick was founded in 1997 under the name Wereldband and is celebrating its 25th anniversary this season. To celebrate, the group is putting on a festive performance. Because Släpstick wants to give their entire audience the opportunity to celebrate the anniversary, she is hosting a Ball in every theater. A performance in the style of a 1920s party, complete with red carpet. A performance that ends in a party with the audience.
''Het vijftal van Släpstick brengt een schitterende ode aan de grootheden van de stomme film.'' ★★★★★
After the enormous success of their previous show, which was described as 'a laughable high-level variety show', Släpstick has toured not only in the Netherlands in recent years but also in England, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and New Zealand. Släpstick has won several (inter)national prizes such as the Johan Kaartprijs (NL), Comedy Award Moers (D) and The Spirit of The Fringe Award (UK).
