Youri & Bart star in theatergroup Tiuri. These actors stay in their part as the see Prince Carnaval. They act like two gangsters and "steal" the typical Carnaval hats and capes so when wearing it they yell "alááááf!!" to all Kielegatters.

Carnaval is nearly there. Not only in Brasil but also in Holland we celebrate Carnaval. Carnaval is a festive season which occurs immediately before Lent; the main events are usually during January and February. Carnival typically involves a public celebration or parade combining some elements of a circus and public street party. People often dress up or masquerade during the celebrations. Carnival is mostly associated with the Roman Catholic religion. (Source: Wikipedia NL)

For the special newspaper called the Kontklopper ("Tap on the but")I was asked to do a couple of shoots with dressed up Kielegatters, the name we use for the people of Breda when it's Carnaval. We aren't called the city of Breda, but the Kielegat, which means as much as the city where people were a 'kiel' (farmer's blouse).
