SIN presents: Step Right Up street shows for emerging talent

In contrast to our neighboring countries, street theater occupies only a tiny place in the Dutch cultural landscape. And that's a shame. Street theater is a beautiful and age-old art form. It’s a consciously chosen form of action and reaction, challenge and reply in which improvisation and timing are of the utmost importance. At its best it is a form of theatre that intentionally derails itself without causing an accident. A more beautiful and direct form of theatre does not exsist. For young theatre makers from the circus, mime and drama schools, street theater is a great learning school and a place to experiment freely. With this new stage called Step Right Up, the organizers from the Street-theatre Institute Nether lands (SIN) offer play time and a try-out space for young talent.

Koekoek is an imaginative circus performance that celebrates the differences that color our
world. Milan is a wacky performer who will show you absurd tricks with his eggs. An
acrobatic choreography about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and never ever giving

There is a prima ballerina in every woman. And also a pyromaniac. SAFE is a spectacular
show with an exploding vacuum cleaner, a jar of sperm and a hint of poetry. All the
ingredients for the life of successful women.

An over the top romantic comedy in the silent movie tradition. From the first meeting … to …
and they lived happily ever after.
A visual spectacle in which the clichés mount into a tragicomic love story.

The glass grinder has been fascinated by singing glasses all his life and built the only glass
organ in the Netherlands, with 52 cognac, wine, champagne and port glasses. A glass organ
of almost three and a half octaves! Let yourself be enchanted by old and new songs - from
Bach to Brel - on singing glass.

HET NATIONAAL SPOOK ORKEST - With Chris Corstens, Harald Austbø and
Marco Baggiani

The SIN (Street-theatre Institute Netherlands) and Step Right Up

To introduce young performers to street theatre, the SIN offers coaching classes and an outdoor street theatre stage called Step Right Up. The SIN is a playground for interdisciplinary theatre makers with artistic courage in the field of visual theater with a dose of humor. It has a theatre and cinema, workshop, rehearsal space, gallery, kitchen, café and library. Prior to the outdoor street shows the performers rehearse their shows in the SIN theatre, under the direction of performer and coach Pieter Post.
