LISTEN, THE NIGHT… is a sound-based fairytale by the Rosa Ensemble about Little Max, a stubborn little boy full of fantasy who is trying to find a name for his little sister. At night, there are whispers, growls and creaks. So in order to stop being scared of the night, he has to be brave enough to really listen to the sounds in the dark, to everything whispering, growling and creaking there. In LISTEN, THE NIGHT… everything sounds like music, but only if you really listen to what is happening around you.

drumdrumdrum – Koló (6+)

Sun. 21 July 2024 12:00 – 12:45, SOLO

KOLÓ – ‘colour’ in Papiamento – is the newest interactive show by drumdrumdrum, where a young audience is introduced to the colourful world of boomwhackers, percussion, drums, singing together, body percussion and more. It’s a combination between a workshop and a show: you watch, listen and make music.

‘Puppet shows are slapstick,’ according to Egon Adel, regular actor of the Puppet Show on Dam Square. Specially for Wonderfeel, he created a show in the tradition of this centuries-old folk theatre, in which Jan Klaassen, lazy as ever, always steals the show together with continuously complaining Katrijn and the necessary and unavoidable bad guy.

DIY with Jacob Plooij

Roasting buns
Did you get hungry from all that playing? Come over to the camp fire and roast your own bun. Put it on a stick and turn, turn, turn it over on the fire! Make sure you don’t burn it and eat it straight away, because they taste the best when they’re warm.

Globe Instruments Garden
Have you always wanted to play a violin? Or an oboe, clarinet, trumpet, or even the cello? At Wonderfeel’s Instruments Garden you can try all kinds of instruments!

The Instruments Garden is organized in collaboration with music school Globe.
