I am theatremaker, 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. I am trained as environmental engineer but became an artist with a network of national and international artists, scientists, writers and organisations.


Currently I am doing a master of theatre practices at Artez, university for the arts in Arnhem (NL). And run this platform for people and landscape called Landscape Labs.

International working experience:

Russia, Denmark, UK, USA, Poland, Czech Rep., Germany, Romenia, Sweden and Belgium.

Statement: “I have a keen eye for conventions, which I love to shake up, not to break down but strenghten by doing so.”

I think every project should also be a school, a library and a workshop. People and stories is what I like!
