In 2016 he graduated the directing department at the theatre school of the Amsterdam University of the Arts and he has been working ever since producing his own performances and collaborating with institutions and theaters in the Netherlands, Norway and Ireland.
For him theater is a space to investigate how to live and how we create the world we live in. He often departs from the encounter with the unknown, the other, that which is radically different from ourselves. The body, landscapes and 'spatial music' are returning points of interest. The relationship between human beings and nature (whatever that might be) is the focus in his work.

For her theater is an arena where proposals for the future are being tested and created. Where we freely can discover things we can not see or talk about off stage.
Being part of a generasjon that has to deal with climate change she feels the urge to actively take part in this situation with her work by inviting ecological systems to join her processes, like the weather, water and other non-humans.
