About Us

Now in our 7th year, The Cyclepaths are an English-language improv theatre company, consisting entirely of native speakers. The company was founded in 2010, first appearing at The Hague Festivals with several sold-out shows at Theater PePijn. Since then we have performed regularly throughout the country. We also offer corporate shows, as well as performances and workshops for Dutch, bilingual, and international schools via Van Engelenburg Theaterproducties.

Our reviews and testimonials

The love we have, the love we've known, they comfort us whenever we're alone.

"On behalf of KSG Apeldoorn I'd like to thank you all for your outstanding performances! Definitely the icing on the cake of our Graduation day, thanks again!!!"

client 1 Saskia Braakman KSG Apeldoorn

"Luke was a wonderful teacher to have as an improv beginner. Besides being very funny and fun himself, he was always enthusiastic and supportive and kind in the way that he gave us feedback."

client 2 Carly Blair AkzoNobel

"Before having started improv, I would have thought I was completely incapable of doing what we are doing… Improv has helped me gain confidence. That is precious"

client 3 Philippe Bernay The Kraft Heinz Company

"And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over."
