of FLYING DUTCHMAN is characterised by its
fairytale-like quality. We are bringing back the
sacredness into the theatre, creating a sense of a
higher power by the use of rituals and the trickery of
magic. We push performers to a limit that raises the
stakes on stage and that makes the shows into an
exciting live theatre experience. The shows are
'multilingual' in its art forms: using a mixture of
puppetry, music, physical theatre and new writing.
divide our theatre in BIG and tiny:
THEATRE - Big productions with lots of
practitioners from different backgrounds. Graduate
students and professionals working and performing
together to tell stories, mostly classical stories,
myths or fairy tales in a
TINY THEATRE -
small shows that easily fit
into a festival program. A limited amount of players,
with a minimum of set requirements. Tiny fairy tales and
crazy little journeys through a wondrous world.
is derived from the classic Myth about a Dutch vessel
that got lost at the coast of South Africa and appeared
as a ghost ship, bound to sail the oceans till doomsday.
The myth was long kept alive by sailors who had seen the
ghost ship. Science calls these sailors liars. We don't.
