Dutch up! on Dutch cabaret

Hans Teeuwen
Hans Teeuwen

Ruud Hisgen will guide you through the world of Dutch comedians. They call it cabaret and sometimes ‘kleinkunst’ (little art). Sometimes it looks like stand-up comedy, sometimes like vaudeville, but even though there are serious moments, the event is mainly funny. Why is cabaret so popular in the Netherlands? Where and when does it come from? What is it about? Who are these funny Dutchies and Flemmies? In this workshop we shall look at several funny sketches and acts and try to make sense of the Dutch texts. Hilarious or not? You decide.

In deze workshop is Ruud Hisgen de gids door de wereld van de Nederlandse komieken. Wat is cabaret precies en wat is het verschil met het komische theater van andere landen en culturen? Waar komt het typisch Nederlandse fenomeen vandaan? Hoe oud is het en waarom is het altijd zo populair geweest? Waar gaat het over? Wie zijn de grappigste Nederlanders en Belgen van dit moment? We kijken naar de acts van allerlei mannelijke en vrouwelijke cabaretiers en lezen met elkaar de teksten van hun sketches en liedjes. Grappig of niet? Jij mag het zeggen.
