Hotel Herewherethere

A coproduction of De Dansers & Het Filiaal theatermakers


We have arrived at a decayed hotel at the end of all the cities: Hotel Herewherethere, where amazing things appear and disappear without cause or reason. Four lost figures end up in the lobby trying to feel at home among dancing fish, teasing furniture and storming walls. Hotel Herewherethere is humorous and strange, yet surprisingly recognizable.

De Dansers and Het Filiaal theatermakers roll up their sleeves to create a family performance in which dance, mime and visual theater come together. They stand up for the beauty of the attempt to always make something of it, even if things go bad. Hotel Herewherethere is dance theater about wandering and discovering for everyone from 8 years old.


“Everything is alive in this special hotel. Like the four guests, you shouldn’t try to understand what’s happening. Go along with it and you will automatically tumble from one amazement into the next. After seeing this performance, you will definitely want to book another night at Hotel Herewherethere.” ★★★★ – Kidsweek

“The non-lingual Hotel Herewherethere becomes a poetic and visual montage performance that provides the young audience plenty of room to freely associate – or to simply enjoy the beautiful images or the inventive incidents. With their open play, Yoko Haveman, Wannes De Porre, Blazej Jasinski and Anna Bentivegna ensure a high level of involvement.” – Theaterkrant
