When I was young I always loved acting in school plays and youth theater productions. I wasn’t sure yet which job I would pursue later, but it would definitely would be ‘something in theater’. After getting my Bachelor degree in Theater Studies at the University of Amsterdam in 2009, I continued studying at the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Theater in Education (Theaterdocent) in 2014.
The past few years I’ve been working in Amsterdam, Weesp and Alkmaar as a theater director and teacher, with a big love for theater on location and community arts.
Right now I am parttime student at the Master Crossover Creativity, where I develop myself towards becoming a social designer. With my background in the arts, I want to bring people with different backgrounds together to work on creative solutions for wicked social problems, and hopefully contribute to making the world a better place for everyone.
One has to accept that “it” [ça] (the other, or whatever “it” may be) is stronger than I am, for something to happen. I have to lack a certain strength, I have to lack it enough, for something to happen. If I were stronger than the other, or stronger than what happens, nothing would happen. There has to be weakness…
