How about we make a show to enrich your sex life? Let's make room for playful fantasies and unknown desires, possibilities without a predetermined outcome.

Current sex education is limited to simple information about pregnancy, STIs, erections and (the horror of) AIDS. If you have sex, you will get pregnant and die. No more condoms on bananas and lists of disease risks! How can we play with sex? Pick up the dildo and write your way out of history. Are you ready?

A quest that alternates between reality and fantasy. Peter Pan on speed for 12+ and up.

What do you want to be when you grow up? A fire fighter? A football player? An accountant? Mum or dad? A magician? An influencer? Or a pilot still? Anything is possible on the playground. Children let their imagination run wild and determine the rules of the game themselves. 'You are the pink Power Ranger and I am the blue-grey-white one. They don't exist, do they? Well, now they do.'

Johan Terryn & De  Studio

Imagine this: you are walking on a beach, you are completely alone, content to be by yourself,
it’s close to noon, the sun shines bright even though it’s February,
you descended the cliff to read, a dip in the ocean would be too cold,
you walk along the cliffs to the spot where you always lay down and heck: on your path, right in front of you, lays a dolphin.
The head half rotted away, but the creature is still clearly a dolphin.
What would you do? Because suddenly you are no longer alone on that beach.

Rediscover this Flemish theatre literature gem and take a look at Flanders today. Where people still have to work, integrate and assimilate. Where classes and communities still don't speak each other's language. Where families are torn apart and young and old, rich and poor, face each other with drawn knives over land and religion. Where economic migration is still a necessity. And oppression by the 1% leads to heated struggle: Het gezin Van Paemel in an ever-changing world, then - 1903 - and now.
