I started my own production company to
– create more of my own work
– bring people together, find the right team per project
– gain experience ‘behind the scenes’
– initiate projects, ideas and develop stories further
Combining my background in acting and experience with running a theatre festival, I developed an interest in interactive, immersive and site specific performances. Ideally with at least a sense of comedy and/or absurdism.
Aside from The Caravan Theatre, I have appreciated all projects that I was able to create through the support, funding and guidance by so many I was lucky enough to meet on the way. All the people I got to work with, all the fun I’ve had and the lessons I’ve learned!
After four years it was time to explore new challenges. I sold The Caravan Theatre and closed the company. Here’s to the new chapter!
