Come to the theater for a dog that lights up, listen to songs by Leonard Cohen, learn from amateur radio operators in a Cold War bunker, celebrate the autumn holidays with Gaasterlandse Natuurweek or listen to jazz and pop from the chamber choir Zestien Wad.
About a dog that gave light
The children’s show The dog that gave light is about Victoria, who, together with her dog Tosti, has recently moved in with her aunt Angina. However, Auntie does not like children and certainly not dogs. Fortunately, Victoria has the attic where she has her own place and keeps special things from her late father. Her aunt calls it junk, but Victoria makes new things out of it or secretly experiments with it. The Dog Who Gave Light is an ode to all that passes and yet remains a little, with a special role for the Mexican holiday El Dia de los Muertos.
It’s a family show bursting with life, full of live music, song, puppetry, slapstick and explosive contraptions. The show is suitable for children aged six and up and is created by Kim van Zeben, who brings the characters on stage to life with her puppets.

The Healing Effects of Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen gave a deep look behind the scenes of life in many of his lyrics with his iconic voice. Songs like The future , In my secret life and A thousand deep kisses are examples of this. In today’s turbulent times, when social changes and transformations are underway, man is at the center, and we can lean on his songs.
The Leonard Cohen Tribute Band performs many well-known and lesser-known songs in original or arranged versions. The connecting theme Come healing is the common thread through this sparkling show with depth.
