Floris (6+)

Dance and music theatre about singing knights and dancing damsels and brave minstrels. With two live musicians, two dancers and a magician!

 

FLORIS brings you back to the middle ages, to a world of forts and castles. And then through the renaissance and the baroque to the present day.

The performance is inspired by the historical figure of Floris V, the count of Holland, who was adored by his people and regarded as a real hero. Floris is still fresh in the memory of many (grand)parents. At at the end of the sixties many children were captivated by the Floris programmes on tv.  In a wonderful setting dance, music theatre and magic  come together. A journey full of surprise through history, in which stereotypes as the dashing knight on a white horse and the damsel in despair in the church tower are celebrated but also subject to scenes of hilarity.

FLORIS is a performance about courage and being a hero, discovering your own strength and realising your dreams. The contemporary composition inspired by the music from the middle ages, to the baroque has been specially written by the composer David Dramm
