Theatre Tour: Yuki and the Curse of the Disappearing Artworks

The Van Abbemuseum is threatened with the disappearance of images, and the colours of the paintings are fading. It seems the artworks are cursed. To save the artworks the museum asked the Japanese Manga-Girl Yuki to help. Yuki has ancient powers that can expel the curse. To do this, you have to look at the paintings very carefully. You can help Yuki to achieve this. Can you get enough points to expel the curse? And will Yuki get her reflection back? Yuki takes you to the exhibition The Making of Modern Art. The tour is accessible for the whole family. This tour is in Dutch.
