What is reality and what is illusion?

Missie Márquez (The Márquez mission), the theatre series in 12 parts, based on the well-known book One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, is back! Theatre maker Karlijn Kistemaker is inextricably connected with this masterpiece, due to a twist of fate, and she has made it her mission to turn it into a theatrical performance. We have now reached part 7, 8 & 9 in which the team escapes to Colombia, where they travel through the land of One Hundred Years of Solitude, disguised as a film crew. From a South American cinema you will be taken along on a thrilling and comical expedition, in which you will encounter shamans, professors and iguanas. You will be part of a literary safari where reality and illusion are easily combined.

Parts 7, 8 & 9 will be played after each other, on the same day. It’s not a problem if you haven’t seen the parts that came before these; you can get on board here.

Festival centre

This year the heart of our festival is located at Oosterstraat 7A, behind the Grand Theatre (in the back of the alley). It is both the heart of the festival, as well as its central meeting point. You can either drop by for a chat, for a dance or a drink. For inquiries, you can turn to our information point that is also located here. You can also purchase tickets here. All very convenient!

The café will open its doors every day at 5 pm, and at 3 pm in the weekend. You can enjoy a festival menu here between 5 and 8 pm.

Stop by for some coffee or a drink!

Jonge Harten presents theatre makers who aren’t just good, but often young and unknown.

That is why there is a viewing guide to help you make a fitting choice from our extensive programme.

But pay mind: the viewing guide doesn’t deal in absolute truths. It doesn’t say that a performance is funny. Because how you experience a performance is a subjective thing and what you find funny, someone else might find tragic. That’s (and maybe also to safeguard ourselves a little bit) why you should take the viewing guide with a pinch of salt and use the viewing guide to get an idea of what possible effects the performance may have on you. We have identified four of these effects and each performance is marked with the icon of the effect we think will be the most fitting. And sometimes a second, as a side-effect.


Performances with the heart, of course, are our favourites. They can seize you by the throat. Afterwards, there is a good chance of some added ‘joy du vivre’ and/or a melancholy aftertaste.


Performances with the cloud aren’t easily grasped. They tickle your imagination, they speak to unexplored parts of your brain and make you look at the world in a whole new way.


The performances with the lightbulb are the most concrete of the festival. You can find some new insights into the inner workings of people and the world.


This one speaks for itself. Attention: there is a possibility of anything in between a chuckle and screaming with laughter.

Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar info@jongeharten.nl en vraag om nadere toelichting. Vermeld de titel van de voorstelling en waar je graag meer duidelijkheid over wilt hebben (is dit iets om met mijn vriend/vriendin naartoe te gaan? het is misschien wel grappig maar toch niet vulgair? dat soort vragen). De programmeurs van het festival geven je dan persoonlijk het verlossende antwoord!
