TreurTeeVee

An absurdist comedy series created by the Circus Treurdier collective. The series is an innovative combination of sketches and drama which renders the intellectual sexy again and gives free reign to music and imagination. 

"Not comparable to any artistic predecessor." - De Volkskrant newspaper.

A tragicomic series with a hint of social criticism created by the Circus Treurdier collective. TreurTeeVee takes place in a stylized and fictive parallel dimension which is quit similar to ours. In TreurTeeVee we follow the lives of some struggling individuals in the grim city of Yolandia.
