 Jori Hermsen Productions in collaboration with

Palace Wesopa &  The Domain  


Theater production Circus Waltz is based on the eponymous series by Robert Alberdingk Thijm and Norbert ter Hall, produced by Bosbros at the time and broadcast by VPRO, VARA and NTR.


At the end of May 2016, a rough location performance will premiere at the cultural business park 'Het Domijn'. Jori Hermsen Productions, in collaboration with amateur company Paleis Wesopa, is making an adaptation of the television series Circus Waltz of the same name.


With no fewer than 21 players between the ages of 12 and 70, director Jori Hermsen takes on the challenge of discovering the world behind the magical slopes of the Waltz family.


The Waltz family has been fighting for the survival of their circus for years. Their faith in the circus binds them, but when circus director Willy Waltz turns out to be seriously ill, the circus dream turns into a nightmare. The conflicts in the family are sharpened; which of them has the capacity to succeed Willy and continue his life's work?


This raw, yet imaginative location performance is an ode to anyone who does not allow themselves to be ruled by fear and who retains the courage to make dreams come true.


Cultural Business Park  The Dome,

Bloemendalerweg 51, 1382 KB, Weesp
