Excuse me, do you have a tow bar?

Hitchhiking with a caravan, but without a car, Tjerk travels through Europe. From Utrecht to Istanbul. After every lift, he has to look for a car with a tow bar and a willing driver who is willing to tow him a little further towards Turkey. His travel buddies: dachshund Dachs and writer/journalist Peter Bijl. 

After almost 3 months and crossing 8 countries, 53 drivers landed them in the Turkish metropolis.

You need others to keep you going
The musical theater program is a combination of stories, songs and film. An adventurous experience in which Tjerk takes you on a journey based on universal themes such as origins, dreams, decisiveness, loneliness, hospitality, prejudices and trust.

The travel story shows the possibilities of new connections and makes visible what can happen if people dare to open themselves up to the unknown. Towbar Wanted! stimulates, inspires, is about thinking outside the box and shows that much more is possible than you think. An adventure that will open your eyes!

'Tow bar wanted! had its (international) premiere at the World Expo in Shanghai and was subsequently seen at the Parade theater festival, Noorderzon, Crossing Border and Lowlands. 

'Jump then, jump then,

it will be your salvation.

Then dare, then do,

don't hold on to the pain.

Then jump, dare, because jump, 

it will be your salvation.'

From the song jump
