Talented circusmakers that deserve your attention 

Great Catch is exactly what the title implies, an experience like no other you can experience right away. A new generation of circus artists has emerged in the Netherlands who not only have fantastic skills, but also create funny, moving and personal theater performances. For the second edition of Great Catch - a fresh taste of circus, the CircusCoalitie selected three original productions by fresh circus talent that will tour Dutch theaters together: Luuk Brantjes, Harvey Cobb and Tête-bêche. So catch yourself a surprising program full of adventurous circus performances!

Luuk Brantjes is specialized in the possibilities of the teeterboard, with allows force to be converted into a state of weightlessness. In L O N E expresses the delicate balance between being alone or lonely. In a world where we are constantly connected, that fear of being alone has increased. L O N E is a tribute to the singles, to the free spirits, and to everyone's most inventive self.

Tête-bêche (Marieke Thijssen, David Mupanda and Wilko Schütz) combine the game of diabolo with partner acrobatics in their new show 3+1. They built  a complex web of hypnotic choreographies, interspersed with spectacular moments in which not only the diabolo, but the acrobats soar through the air.

Harvey Cobb won the BNG Bank Circusprijs in 2022 with his distinct mix of comedy, improvisation and juggling. During this night, Harvey plays part of his hilarious solo Pink Boots and An Alcoholic Sock Puppet: a mix of absurd stand-up routines, heartfelt sincerity and an abundance of pink boots, making you wonder whether everything is going terribly amiss or exactly according to plan.
