Gebroeders Fretz 2

Join us for an evening of laughter with the renowned cabaret duo Harteveld & Fretz.

The mission is clear: In 2025, Johan Fretz would like to become the new Prime Minister of the Netherlands, with Marcel Harteveld as his spin-doctor. The time has come to convey their message on an international level in a campaign that makes borders between fiction and reality fade away.

Their hilarious performance is an intriguing mix of comedy, stand-up and rock.


NL:

Twee jaar lang touren zij als ‘Harteveld en Fretz’ door het land met hun revolutionaire cabaretvoorstelling, ‘Revolte’.

Twee jaar lang is hun missie duidelijk: In 2025 zou Johan Fretz de nieuwe Minister-President van Nederland zijn, met Marcel aan zijn zijde als oer-Hollandse spindoctor.

… En nu? Nu is het tijd om ook internationaal de boodschap van verbroedering uit te spreken. Marcel en Johan zijn terug, als ‘Harteveld en Fretz’.

Het duo nodigt u uit voor een opzwepende campagne-bijeenkomst waarbij de grens tussen fictie en werkelijkheid volledig vervaagt.

Revolte is een messcherpe, hilarische en eigenzinnige mix van Pop, Hoop en Stand-up waar de mensheid in bange dagen naar smacht.

Kauwboy Boudewijn Koole, 2012, 84 minutes

Don’t miss the opportunity to watch the award-winning film Kauwboy.

Kauwboy won several awards at European festivals. It only has only three significant characters and might be considered a cinematic equivalent of a young-adult novel.

With his first feature-length film Boudewijn Koole has succeeded in creating a touching portrait of a boy who is struggling with a difficult family situation. Every detail reflects his need, but also his unbridled joy at the beautiful moments in his life.

The film is told from the point of view of Jojo (Rick Lens), who has a wary relationship with his sullen father. When he rescues a baby crow that has fallen from its nest, the boy discovers a sense of purpose.
