Timtim (4+)

By Simone de Jong

Performed by Toon Kuijpers and Niels Kuiters

The surreal journey of two carpenters


Two carpenters. They build often and they constantly rebuild. Their world is never finished, it can always be better, more beautiful, different. Thinks Tim. Thinks Willie. But Tim can’t stop hammering and Willie wants to protect the household goods. Then fatigue sets in. Dream and reality are increasingly intertwined in the wonderful world of Timtim.

Timtim is a visual performance with humour, carpentry energy and a pinch of magic. Timtim is about two passionate craftsmen, their friendship and their adaptability.


This show is language no problem.
