Punch & Judy puppet show at Rembrandtplein
The traditional story shown is a sequence of scenes played in Amsterdam for over 200 years, and it shows that Jan Klaassen clearly has similar roots as its European brothers (Pulcinella, Policinelle, Punch etc). Enjoy this traditional fairy tale puppet show during the summer every Saturday at 14:00 and 15:00 at Rembrandtplein in front of Rembrandts statue.
The traditional story of Jan Klaassen
Jan Klaassen conquers all: Domestic challenges in his marriage with Katrijn and having a baby, dealing with authority when enlisted in the army, defying Death itself and ending the story in an explosive fight with the Devil.
It is a tale from the humble folk, a theatre of the poor and the working class, but it has deep philosophical grounds. Also, it is all presented lightheartedly with lots of visual humour and slapstick. There is a lot of action and interaction. Therefore, children of all ages are one of the most rewarding audience members.
