I am an artist, theatre maker, director and visual artist as well as builder and initiator of artist-in-residencies. From 2004 until 2014 I was a core member of the theatregroup PeerGrouP. Since then I run Landscape Labs. I am trained (MA) in theatre practices and have a background in environmental science (BSc). Whatever I do I do it with others and I am an artist with a network of national and international artists, scholars, writers and organisations.

Currently I am working on exhibitions, performances and food. For the latter I have initiated Foundation Proef me, to create cultural and culinaire art.

International working experience:

Greece, Bulgaria, Russia, Denmark, Wales, California, Poland, Czech Rep., Germany, Romania, Sweden, France, Belgium.

Statement: “I have a keen eye for conventions, which I love to shake up.”

TAIR residence at Buitenplaats Koningsweg in Arnhem

I believe every project should also be a school, a library and a workshop. Please treat every site as a crime-scene, excavation and a theatre and work from there! But stay kind and open. Hospitality is the key!
