Comedy with your breakfast

A heavy morning on Monday morning? Not if you start your week at the Breakfast Comedy Club, again at the Theater Diligentia.

Kiki Schippers makes you extra cheerful on Monday morning. Every first Monday morning of the month, a comedian puts a smile on your face in the Theater Diligentia.

Spinoza and the Art of Happiness

Artists also like to be challenged. Anne Woodward therefore came up with the following: various artists had to be inspired by the Hague philosopher Spinoza. For those who don’t know this philosopher: he tried to look at ordinary things in a new way. The questions ‘how does a rainbow form?’, ‘how can you actually know if something is true?’ kept this philosopher busy. The exhibition can be seen until Sunday 10 November in the Klinkenbergzaal in Pulchri Studio. Nice to know and to note: admission is free.
