DODO

THE RESURRECTION

Buy a ticket

 

The miraculous comeback of the Dodo.

After centuries of sunbathing on the island of Mauritius, the dodo got extinct by the end of the 17th century. The reason: the animal, which couldn't fly nor swim, was faced with a bunch of castaways from Amsterdam. But wait: not all of them vanished. Two lonely dodos managed to survive. They protect themselves by hiding in the theaters of Amsterdam.

Dodo: Official trailer

This is the trailer of our previous show: Dodo's Magical Mind Trip, which we performed in the smallest theater of Amsterdam. Stay tuned to be the first to see the trailer of Dodo: The Resurrection.

Dodo: The Resurrection

Absurd magic theater for lovers of David Lynch and Jacques Tati

Magician: just imagine being one. It’s what happened to Chris Bordet and Woedy Woet, a.k.a. Duo Dodo. Against all odds these two peculiar birds try to fight extinction.


Dodo: The Resurrection is magic theater of life and death. In a show full of obscure images and sweet soap bubble kitsch they work towards a spectacular attempt: will the dodos succeed... in flying?

A magical, surrealistical theater experience full of impossible effects, which will probably keep you awake at night for some weeks. A crazy no nonsense performance without pretense and without a message. In short: Fringe style. Witness live how Duo Dodo makes the impossible possible.

Dodo: The Resurrection will be performed on the 7th, 8th, 9th and 11th of September at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival.
