    Waiting and Other Heroic Acts
    An aesthetic ‘Waiting for Godot’ for children.

    Four guards are standing in front of a high wall. They are waiting and keeping watch, without knowing why or for how long. Behind the wall is a state secret and everything is suspect, everyone a potential enemy of the state. But everything changes when one of them suddenly disappears and disrupts their unshakable rhythm.

    A remarkable piece of theatre – playful, surprisingly and painfully funny as well as moving
    The Guardian

    1 September 2004. Chechen rebels force their way into a Russian school and hold more than a thousand pupils, teachers and parents hostage inside the gymnasium. Three days later the siege comes to a horrendous conclusion. Two surviving school children try to describe the siege in as much detail as possible to get to grips with the terrible events. But before long, their imagination takes over.

    Wildekids' biggest trump card is its playful, multi-layered text.

    A bitter-sweet tale of poverty and its presence in the world of two inseparable children. Both heart-warming and heart-rending, with playful humour and plenty of imagination, two fierce firecrackers find each other in a priceless friendship.

    Say Hello to the Geese
    A melancholic, poetic performance that makes both young and old laugh, think, cry and really grabs them. Intense and engaging.

    ‘Say Hello to the Geese’ is a melancholic and poetic performance capable of touching both young and old. The evocative text leaves room for poetry, humour and clowning.

    Maybe this season’s best kept secret

    In a candid conversation, the two characters explore how this new situation can bring them together and how this illness either challenges or strengthens their friendship. Tragicomic, vulnerable and moving – but above all genuine.
