A lot of the solo performances (Lady M, Cassandra, Lost in Denmark and Lady Anne) produced by Het Vijfde Bedrijf are still being booked. This also applies to the work in collaboration with Hans van den Boom, Mary Stuart II. These are shows that when requested find their way to the stage years after they premiered.
Besides this work I'm currently rehearsing for M O N U M E NT at Source Material (view the trailer on the right).
SOURCE MATERIAL is an art collective based in the USA and Reykjavik, Iceland. Each project is ferociously adventurous and interdisciplinary.
M O N U M E NT is a new performance inspired by King Lear, directed by Samantha Shay (founder of Source Material).
Performances are planned on the July 19th and 20th 2018, at LungA Arts Festival in Iceland.

Besides this I'm preparing for Festival Classique in which I will bring short texts by Hans van den Boom. The performance is planned on the June 14th 2018.
