Since 1996 I’m active in the Dutch theater world. After my studies Theatre Technology and Cultural management at the Amsterdam School of the Arts, I worked as a freelance lighting technician for various companies and productions including Koning of Katoren, 42nd Street, Lied in de Schemering and successful tour A tribute to the Blues Brothers. As company electrician I participated in a series of productions of Conny Janssen Danst including Light, Vuil & Glass, Rebound, So Here We Are, location productions Common Ground, How Long Is Now and the acclaimed dance production with ZOUT Anne Soldaat. I have made lightingdesigns for including the family shows Pippi Longstocking, Jungle Book and Otje, the hippie musical Hair and modern dance performances Rebound, Ruis, Sparring Partners, In Two Minds, ZOUT and Meer Ruis from Conny Janssen Danst, Waltz by Krisztina de Châtel and These Little Nothings by Valasia Simeon. Also the lightingdesigns of Reality is shaped by recalling, Bittersweet and Male Version by Liat Waysbort are my own. In collaboration with Niek Kortekaas I designed including the family shows Snorro and Moord in de kerststal of the Ro Theater, Reis om de wereld of the Zuidelijk Toneel and On Eagles Wing in Ireland. I also designed the lighting for several performances directed by Niek, such as De Storm and Trojaanse Vrouwen at the Zeeland Nazomerfestival, Woest Water at the Ro-theater and family shows Pippi Longstocking and The Jungle Book for Tournee Theater.
