BonteHond makes bold, accessible theatre for a young audience and an audience that still feels young. We do this, because we feel that it is important for children to maintain an open and opinionated view of theworld in addition to all rules and agreements. We want to persuade them to refrain from becoming “too” mature, because we think that that’s what makes the world a better place. How awesome would it be ifwe all regarded each other and the world around us with curiosity? We would be less afraid of everythingthat’s different or strange.
BonteHond has gained extensive touring experience since it was founded in 2005. You’ll find us all acrossthe Netherlands, Belgium and increasingly abroad. With a current average of six medium sized and small scale productions per year, the company is continuously touring theatres, schools, festivals and on-site, with shows, educational service activities, and theatrical encounters.
Over the past few years BonteHond’s internationalization policy has focused on international sales. Especially the language-free toddler performances are very popular abroad (Wanted: Rabbit, iPet and Get’M have been played for several seasons) and will also be offered in 2021-2024 (Super Slow: slow motion hip-hop for toddlers). After the succesfull exchange of making the Turkish version of Wanted Rabbit with Atta Festival in Istanbul, BonteHond wants to focus on exchange internationally, in addition to only international sales. Working internationally is intercultural and is about sharing inspiration, values, knowledge and expertise. It is a perfect way to develop artistically, to allow cultural diversity to sink in even more deeply into the DNA of BonteHond, to reach new audiences and to get children to think about differences – which may not be as big as you think at first.
