Woedy Woet Tricky Theater

Absurd magical comedy theatre

Usually you don't like to be misled, but sometimes a situation is created where you don't want anything else.
The magician Woedy Woet, in trying to expose his magic as much as possible, is leading you as far away from reality as possible. And after his fine explanation you are completely lost.
Woedy is a comedian, his humour is absurd en his stories as enlightening as sunglasses.

Who is Woedy Woet?

Goochelaar Woedy Woet uit Amsterdam

Woedy Woet

Comedy Magician

Starting in 1981 as a magician he makes more than fifteen different children shows and ten different adult shows. Each of these shows has been performed many times and in different circumstances. He works a lot on parties with a certain theme, like 'the mob', 'western' or 'medieval'. He also does the special effects for several plays, musicals and operas. He performs in theaterprograms, where he combines magic with other theatre disciplines like dance, music, acting and acrobatics. He took courses in these disciplines. He took lessons in improvisation at the theaterschool in Amsterdam, joined an impro-theatregroup ("theatersports") for several years and was active as a stand-up comedian. In 2000 he became artistic leader of the theatre dinner 'De Nacht van Merlijn' and 'De Klokkenluider van Rottredam'. In 2003 he starts his own theatre restaurant in Amsterdam: The Tricky Theater. After nine years other theatres became too tempting. He leaves his theatre to perform on other locations. He worked with theatre group Zimbra, Sylvia Wardenaar, Andreas Denk of Plan-D, Scott and Muriel en formed with Christophe Bordet The Duo Dodo.

Tricky Theater

Tricky Theater

Comical Magic act
A classic magician dressed up in white tie and tails, performs an act with balls, cards and flowers, in which everything fails as planned. Some tricks do succeed, but only at the expense of his dress. Nevertheless the magician retains his dignity and leaves the stage fully "recovered".
Duration :8 or 12 minutes

José Torro d'Amore, a gipsy from the south of Europe, goes about cities and shires. He claims to be "much" strong, which he proves by tearing a telephone book in two. To convince everybody of his strength he also lifts, effortless, someone over his head. José shows not only the strength of his body, but also the power "in his head", by finding back a formerly chosen card, while handcuffed behind his back. Even if he is being put in irons from top to toe, and being put in a sack and finally being hoisted up, he is still able to find back the formerly chosen card.
Duration :15 minutes
