The Seduction (Maarten Westra Hoekzema)

What is the key to a successful life with many friends, even more money and a beautiful partner at your side? The answer is: seduction. Maarten Westra Hoekzema knows all about it and just loves to reveal his seduction advice! He becomes true omniscient guru in this performance and tells you exactly how to seduce, in order to get what you want.How to advertise in the best way possible. How to sell a rickety car for too high a price. And especially how to seduce a woman or a man with an overwhelming success rate. Because the better you can seduce the better you will be able to cope with today's society.

The Seduction was selected for Het Theaterfestival and Circuit X in 2012. This production continues to be part of the repertoire.

Using the de persuasiveness of a costume-wearing guru, Maarten Westra Hoekzema provides you with useful hints: how to attain the ultimate success, how to seduce the woman of your dreams? As funny as it is clever, 'The Seduction' fools around with the format of a fluent presentation, to leave you behind with a couple of articulate questions. It is entertaining because it is presented as comedy, yet it isn't." (Jury Het Theaterfestival, Circuit X)
