Hoedje – a musical journey on the wind for everyone from 5 years old
BRISK with actress Kiki Heessels
A light-hearted new show full of humour, based on a text by Irene Kuiper and with music by Juan Felipe Waller, Walther Stuhlmacher, Maurice Ravel and Henry Mancini. The direction is by Hans Thissen, who created high-profile youth music theatre productions.
A little red hat is swept away by a storm. This is the start of an adventurous journey across the globe, in which the wind plays a major role together with four blowing recorder players. BRISK and Kiki Heessels take you on a journey that you will remember for a long time! Isn’t Hoedje much too small for that big elephant? What are those baboons doing there? One bird laughs at Hoedje, the other sings her a song. But will Hoedje ever come home?
