We are back at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a new show ‘Schërzo’

Släpstick is back at this year’s prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Dutch music theatre group will perform its new show Schërzo at top venue The Pleasance Courtyard, also known as ‘the heart of the Fringe’, throughout August. Before the trip to Scotland, Schërzo can be seen several times in the Netherlands; an international tour of theatres as well as concert halls will follow after the festival.

In 2017, Släpstick won the Spirit of The Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with the show of the same name. With the new show Schërzo, the group reaches back to the classical (conservatoire) roots of the five members in a quirky, playful slapstick manner. A show for the whole family, a twist for every generation.
