Is it theatre? Is it delicious food?
It’s both at the Winterparade

The dinner will be interspersed with a program full of surprising performances.

The evening will start already outside with music and a hot beverage. Inside the church warm soup is waiting for you. A colourful group of artists (Club Gewalt, acrobat from Codarts, PIPS:lab, etc.) will engage you in 2 performance before dinner en and 2 performances after dinner. And it all happens on and around our 120 meter long table. There will be acting, dancing, acrobats, the making of a film and so much more. And in the meantime our cooks and waiter climb the table to prepare your food.

Moeremans & Sons - The Moral Auction

In a monetary driven world, in which you would almost think money has real value, there now is the Moral Auction. A pop-up auction house where one doesn’t pay with paper money or coins, but with an ethical currency.


What are you willing to lay on the Moral Auction-counter for the guarantee of never having your bike stolen again? A week of dumping your garbage in the ocean? Giving a child a pack of cigarettes? Would you be willing to drive while drunk – with all the consequences this will bring – for a life without financial worrying? And what would you do for a lifelong guarantee of your partner’s health? Would you maybe even be willing to drive into someone, leaving him for dead? Going, going… Morally gone!


With: Eva van Gessel, Rosa van Leeuwen, Sofie Joan Wouters, Eva Meijering, Charlien Adriaenssens, Louis van der Waal, Joep van der Geest en Matthijs IJgosse.

Of all these actors, two will play per day. Click here to see the schedule.

Kristie and Karen Su with Arlon Luijten - Pagan1n1 M0rphb1tch

‘A dazzling performance about the violin, perfection and genetic manipulation.’
violin virtuoso Paganini had extremely long fingers. This made him able to cover an impossible distance on the instrument, in a speed that was inhuman. Kristie and Karen Su’s fingers have an average length of 8,5 cm. What if, in the near future, you could genetically optimize yourself, simply upload the art of making music via a chip,  and the magical 20.000 hours of rehearsal would never be necessary again…?

Silent Disco

The concept of the WinterParade is created by pioneer Terts Brinkhoff: the inspiring father of the WinterParade and the Parade. The Parade is a theatre festival that travels through the parks of Rotterdam, Den Haag, Utrecht and Amsterdam every summer. Not long ago, also a new festival, Showman’s Fair, premiered in Utrecht, and in 2018, this festival will travel all the way to Governor’s Island, New York.
