The Show "Släpstick":
Flying violins! Speed skating ballerinos! Släpstick is an ode to the timeless comedy of Charlie Chaplin, Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and Laurel & Hardy. A spectacular collection of musical and humorous acts rooted in the slapstick tradition, but with a very modern twist. Släpstick is based in the Netherlands, consists of five world-class performers who have mastered over 100 instruments between them. With a flair for eccentricity and a hint of melancholy,Släpstick has left audiences and critics breathless. The show was rated both by Dutch nation wide media, as well by the international press in Edinburgh. A perfect blend of virtuosic musicianship, lung-bursting physical comedy and heartfelt nostalgia in the true "slapstick" tradition.
