musical theatre based on an epic story
co-creation with Muziektheater Hollands Diep and Zapp4
The story of Gilgamesh and his friend Enkidu is an ancient one. Nothing scares these two best friends in the world. Not the terrible Humbaba, nor the bird Anzu. Not even the village girls. But what if they come across Death? Doesn’t that scare them?
Gilgamesh is a musical performance for all the family, inspired by one of the oldest stories in history.
