Narnia becomes GRIMM

Completely unexpected, we were not granted the rights to perform the reprise of Narnia: the lion, the witch and the wardrobe. This means we cannot perform Narnia.

Dutch National Ballet and ISH have decided to produce a new show, in a similar vein as Narnia, with the same creative team and for the same age group (8 years and up): GRIMM, a spectacular journey through the world of fairy tales.

Do you already have tickets for Narnia? They will of course be valid for the new show GRIMM. We strive to bring you another show of the high quality you are used to, that will offer you another beautiful evening in the theatre.

GRIMM is about two boys who find themselves in a fantasy world, where they meet Red Riding Hood and the wolf, the seven dwarves, Rapunzel, Snow White, the witch, Cinderella and other fairytale characters in succession. They get mixed up in exciting adventures, in which all sorts of elements from well-known fairytales are jumbled up in a lively parade of fairytale characters. As in all fairytales, a big role is played by love and jealousy, friendship, tyranny, intrigues and the battle between good and evil.

In a completely new adaptation, Marco Gerris and Ernst Meisner are making a compilation of the best Grimm stories, interwoven with magic and contemporary elements. Following the huge success of Narnia, GRIMM is once again an exciting collaboration between the Junior Company and ISH Dance Collective. Ballet dancers and hiphoppers dance together in a new, individual dance style, in which they challenge and surprise one another.
