Hendrik returns to his roots: a 'show' full of improvisation, mime and humor. In 'Sidewalk Chalk' you meet his cheerful personality. He inspires his audience and with only a few pieces of chalk, he carries the public into his unique universe. Hendrik surprises, delights and sometimes even teases and fools his audience.
