The Wandering Jew by Sieger Baljon

One potential audience member asked me But is he a JEW ? I wasn't sure what to answer or what difference it would make to her so I told her what I told everyone that would listen that this promenade theatre piece with music was BRILLIANT and that Sieger Baljon's performance enthralled even casual passers by as he brought the audience through Vondelpark unravelling stories, songs and reflections as he went.


Cupidorossi drew a crowd of admirers from Vondelpark. No-one could resist his charm.

Music Night at The Butcher's Tears

It was a noisy crazy night at The Butcher's Tears. All we have to show for it is this footage of The Doppelgangers captured by Boudewijn Ruckert and even he got the title wrong - it's Asleep Inside A Dead Horse. But that's live performance - you had to be there.

De Vondelbunker is a Hard Mistress . . .

The first weekend of Free Fringe was amazing and overwhelming. De Vondelbunker is a hard mistress and so the crew are bunged up with what has become known as 'bunker crud'.We will update the blog soon with the best of the images and footage harvested from many of the shows and performances. But for now we are still digesting it all ! And if you weren't there - well, tough you missed it! There is more free fun to come - check for details at the Festival website
