After the successful first sailing period in October, Kroft&Smids and Stichting Praamvaren Leeuwarden are back with Praanverhalen (Pram Stories), Peer Gynt.

Praamverhalen, Peer Gynt  (Pram Stories, Peer Gynt) is a unique audiovisual boat trip through a dark Leeuwarden with a story that travels with you. And that only unfolds for you and your fellow sailors. Through headphones you can hear the seven actors who together tell the story of Peer Gynt, supplemented with music and images that appear on the quays. Peer Gynt, a hothead with a wild fantasy who, on a journey that takes him from the rugged mountains of Norway to the dry desert sands of North Africa and back again, sets out in search of himself. A journey that will turn out to be a great adventure and last a lifetime. And all the while his beloved Solveig is waiting for him at home…

Voices by Tim Helderman, Lisa Malou Frenkel, Anna Raadsveld, Jelke Rijpma, Wybo Smids, Freark Smink and Joop Wittermans.
