An presentation about the monarchy, leadership and the role of the king.



June 3 & 4 2015


Kloveniersburgwal 86

1012 CZ Amsterdam


The King's secret is a multidisciplinary performance about the monarchy, leadership and the role of the king. The King's Secret is an investigation into modern leadership and at the same time a design for new forms of governance that match the spirit of the time and society we live in today. It is a presentation that actively involves the public, promoting reflection and challenges to take a position.With a sense of humor and a serious undertone full of uncomfortable, unpredictable and improvised situations with lots of time for reflection.


Artist Marieke Warmelink became King by accident and reveals in her new role the secrets of the Dutch monarchy.

In The King's Secret Warmelink offers an alternative that replaces the monarchy; a design for a new form of governance that fits the times and society we live in today.


The research and production period that lasted over 6 months was made possible by the Amsterdam Fund of the Arts with a development fund.
