Zou je improvisatie of theatersport wel eens willen uitproberen? Lijkt het je leuk om veel te lachen, veel te doen en ‘uit je hoofd’ te raken? Je zal verbaasd staan wat er ‘uit het niets’ voor prachtigs kan ontstaan. Je hoeft niet grappig te zijn, of een snelle denker, of lenig. Je hoeft alleen maar binnen te lopen.

And what about

Future Covid restrictions?

Let’s start with: hurray, we can start our courses again! And we are optimistic that theaters can open again, when we have our shows. 

As Flock Theatre, we are adapting to the best of what is possible given the current measures. We are using the following Covid policy:

  • For our courses and shows, we have to ask for a corona-toegangsbewijs. That means a QR code that shows that you are vaccinated or received a negative PCR test. (We are not allowed anymore to accept self-tests.)
  • We keep 1,5 meter distance where possible. In the hallways of the venues, we all wear masks. In class, you can take it off. 
  • If you booked a ticket for a show that is canceled, you will get a voucher for a future show.
  • We will not switch an offline course to fully online. We might offer a few lessons online or mixed, if the course has already started, but will not simply switch online. We believe that online and offline theatre are two very different things.

We will always follow the governmental rules for “cultural expression” to offer a safe space for everyone.

Thank you for your understanding and for supporting live theatre. We love having you on board!
