In a new collaboration with the Willemsvaart, the open-air Zuiderparktheater and the Hofje van Wouw STET The English Theatre presents an evening programme on location to be reached by boat through the canals of The Hague.
The Greatest Thing is a visual performance with an exclusive soundtrack, starring singer-songwriter Miss Walker and mime artist Silent Rocco from Berlin. For 45 minutes, the scene turns into a gateway to another world. A quiet vagabond walks into a seemingly lifeless neon fairy. The content of her golden leather pouch becomes the key to their common story and unleashes a tender musical fairytale, rife with enchanting live songs, interactive moments and captivating choreographies.
This performance has won great acclaim at festivals throughout Europe and Asia and can now be seen for the first time in the Netherlands in the green surroundings of the very special open-air Zuiderparktheater and in the middle of the old Centre of The Hague in the historical grounds of the Hofje van Wouw.
A unique midsummernight’s experience for theatre and boat-lovers. It is accessible for young and old. So feel welcome to join the boat to The Greatest Thing. On board a drink is awaiting you and people can bring their own picnic if they like. After the performance the boats of the Willemsvaart will take everybody back to the normal world where this adventure started.
