Excursions in Groningen and Drenthe: five cultural tips

Come and listen to Girls with the Wijsjes, laugh with Fabian Franciscus, dream away with Shakespeare Theater Diever, see Giclée in Kunstwinkel Roesd or experience a baroque concert with PRJCT Amsterdam and Maarten Engeltjes.

Girls with the smart ones

Throw strong four-part vocals, funny scenes and a virtuoso musician into one soup, and you have the refreshing situation of the only real Dutch vocal pop group Girls with the Wijsjes. Their new theater performance nut steel is a bit harder and more daring than their first show tile wisdom . For example, they shake off the good image with their second show, with a program about communication in our mother tongue, primal language, sign language, body language, musical language or lack of language…

The girls are accompanied by their multi-instrumentalist as they perform a wide repertoire. Think of well-known and lesser-known Dutch songs by artists such as Marco Borsato, Boudewijn de Groot, Alain Clark, the 3JS and Anouk. All this is supplemented by the girls’ own work. In this way, everything is pulled out to blow the public’s socks off, to move and surprise.

Sympathetic, disarming and yet a little scared

After two well received shows it’s time for Fabian Franciscus’s third performance, this time with the title Nice and cozy . With his characteristically sympathetic, disarming and above all fearful attitude, Fabian defies life. However, he does not do so with great success. But that’s what makes life so wonderfully unpredictable and fun. However?

Well, afterwards you better laugh at everything, it’s so nice. Or as Fabian would say: ‘Life is hard and before you know it, a piano falls from the sky and you die. It would almost make you depressed. And I did that as the only one with great success.’

Delfzijl – De Molenberg, Thu 20.15, 20 euros
