Hauke Haien and his white stallionStorm Rider tells the dramatic story of the ambitious and quirky Hauke Haien. A dyke master with only one goal in mind: build a dyke that defies the centuries. On a white stallion, he storms over the dykes, rousing up dyke workers. Until, during a storm surge, the dyke breaks and Hauke is swallowed up by the sea together with his white stallion.

Legend comes to FrieslandTo this day, people see the ghost of the dyke master and that of his horse on the mudflats. Jos Thie, who wrote earlier productions like ABE! and Peer Gynt, brings the legend to Friesland and takes us to the year 1650.

PerformancesDon’t miss out! Storm Rider can only be seen in 2018. Starting in September, performances take place in the WTC Expo in Leeuwarden.
