A wordless and merry performance about a devious chess game…

On the chess board there is no room for scruples – in the war for power and love, as we know, anything goes – and out folds the story of how the devious Jago with dirty tricks and lies turns the head of the naive and lovestruck Othello. A fresh, different and image-saturated puppet version of Shakespeare’s drama

You can find all the show guidelines for various schools and institutions HERE.

Please pay special attention to the following guidelines for evening and weekend shows:

• All 2020 shows have been put on sale with a reduced number of seats in the halls.
• When buying more than one ticket at a time, you’ll get a matching number of adjacent seats. Accordingly, there’ll be a distance of less than one metre between the persons in the group. All groups will be given seat numbers upon arrival for the show.
• If you wish to keep one metre between you and your neighbours (from nose to nose), each ticket must be bought individually. For logistical reasons, we cannot guarantee that you’ll be seated next to each other in this case. You’ll be given a seat number upon arrival for the show.
