After the success of Wachstumsschmerzen and Todesangstschrei, Rundfunk is back with the show Schau. Even grander and sharper! Truly a Schauschau. A schauwy Schauschau. Well-schaud we schau this Schau as our schauste Schau. Be spectator of this Schaubizz spectacle, because it could be a terrifyingly schaunting Schauspel. So hurry, schaulders down and tell the taxi driver: on to the Schauburg!

Run time 90 minutes
Genre Cabaret
Language Dutch

Selected for the Cabaret Collection 2024

From the jury report
"A frighteningly sleek and edited programme. Shifting between corny and absurdist, Tom van Kalmthout and Yannick van de Velde perform a series of mentally challenged men for whom violence should only distract attention from a deeper hurt. Rundfunk has elevated sketch-making to a higher art."

REVIEWS

de Volkskrant

"In the extremely entertaining Schau, Tom van Kalmthout and Yannick van de Velde are on top form. Their texts are razor-sharp. Thanks to dazzling light, sound and scenery, directed by Peter van de Witte, it is also a treat for the senses."

NRC

"It is clever how Van de Velde and Van Kalmthout maintain their style and yet evolve. Thanks to a rich breeding ground: man in all his weaknesses and neuroses. Which makes for ninety minutes of outstanding entertainment."

5 - 15 September

Nederlands Theater Festival

Nederlands Theater Festival (NTF) marks the festive start of the new theatre season. For eleven days, NTF presents the finest, most impressive performances of the past season, based on the choices of seven independent juries from the Netherlands and Flanders. Thus, NTF celebrates many genres and forms of theatre: drama, cabaret, youth theatre, mime, performance and more.

The festival starts with the always talked-about lecture De Staat van het Theater and the in-depth interview The State of the World with a famous international artist. The festival concludes with a celebratory presentation of the Netherlands' most important theatre awards during The Gala of Dutch Theatre.
