Success in Bristol

THE WRITER appeared at the Bristol Festival of Puppetry at the Tobacco Factory and received a bucket of great reviews. “By far one of the most inspiring pieces of theatre of the year.” according to Total Theatre Magazine. “A jaw-droppingly impressive production, an explosive performance, a heartrending story of love, misguided patriotism and betrayal: ‘The Writer’ is an excellent example of the immense possibilities of contemporary puppet-theatre.” as Venue put it and gave 5 stars.

14 years after its creation, A DANCE TRIBUTE TO THE ART OF FOOTBALL is bound for Holland and Belgium. These countries have seen various JSK shows earlier, most recently through intensive touring of DE SCHRIJVER. Now they have the chance to see a true original, which has been of inspiration to many other choreographers, done as it was in 1997 and still nowhere near any trends. The tour is managed by Baasbank & Baggerman.
