The premiere of the new theatrical tourFamille van Camille took place in February. This exciting tour is intended for primary school children in years 3 to 6, but will certainly also appeal to the imagination of the staff who accompany them.
Who are those two French ladies there in the Van Gogh Museum? They are very conspicuously trying to be inconspicuous. During the tour, the children are taken into the museum by Josephine and Cornélie. They introduce themselves as descendants of Camille Roulin, the boy painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1888. The two have travelled on their moped from France to Amsterdam to see their grandfather’s portrait. This is because they have had a letter from him: he has a problem. Jojo and Coco set out to solve that for him. And they could use some help with that!
Famille van Camille is played for a maximum of 30 schoolchildren. During the showing, the children are divided into two groups. Because the children’s knowledge is used during the tour, it is important that they know many things about Vincent van Gogh. The more the children know, the more enjoyable the tour! The teaching materials can be downloaded free of charge from the Van Gogh Museum website.
