Performance Discipline
I started my theatrical career at the Mickery Theater in Amsterdam.
Tokyo was the next stop, where I researched Japanese Avantgarde Theater at Waseda Daigaku. After graduating in Dramaturgy from the University of Amsterdam I left for New York, where I studied acting and directing at Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and Bill Esper Studio. I also obtained a graduate degree in Drama Therapy from New York University’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions and a Teacher’s Certificate in Stage Combat from the Society of American Fight Directors.
In New York, La MaMa was my artistic home; I directed my own productions and took part in those of other La MaMa artists as a performer, fight choreographer and production assistant. As La MaMa’s representative at the Assos International Theatre Festival in Turkey, I developed site- specific productions. I was also part of the La MaMa festival at the Teatro dell’Angelo in Rome. Subsequently, I was invited to create a theater festival in Abruzzo, Italy. I set up theater labs for 500 fifth-graders there and developed site-specific performances.
After 20 years of living and working abroad, I returned to my native country: the Netherlands. Here I continue my work as a director and fight choreographer and added presentation skills training in the business world to my activities.

INTAGLIO Ellen Edinoff, Koert Stuyf, Philip Glass

Posted on May 7, 2012 at 11:00am 0 Comments

The performance of INTAGLIO -with music by Philip Glass - broke an almost 40-year silence of creator/choreographer/dancer Koert Stuyf and his muse, the inimitable stage legend Ellen Edinoff.

Lovely introduction by Philip Glass (excuse the fuzzy images) himself at the world premiere of INTAGLIO at the Rabozaal in Amsterdam on 29 April 2012.

On stage at the minutes-long curtain call in a packed-to-the-max Rabozaal, Ellen Edinoff, Koert Stuyf, Mickey de Haan, Peter Spoor (all in…


Generations at Dansgroep Amsterdam: Learning from the Masters

Posted on December 8, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

Scottish choreographer William Collins, an alumnus of the Amsterdam School for New Dance Development, kicks off the Generations program with Exclamations. Collins’ choreography is larded with indeed, exclamations, shards of song and talk about a dead cat. These burlesque moments and assistant-choreographer Airen Koopman’s plain and playful costumes, relieve and counteract the anguish created by Collins’ proclivity for distortion and disjointed movements. Collins’ insistence…

Moliere the Magnificent

Posted on September 17, 2011 at 6:00am 0 Comments

There is a chair in the museum collection of the Comédie-Française in Paris, which is displayed in a corridor right off the theater’s main lobby, encased in a glass cabinet like Sleeping Beauty. It is a simple armchair on casters, upholstered in tattered leather. The chair is old, at least some 350 years. Legend has it, that the playwright-actor Molière practically died in it, on stage, when he had a coughing fit during the fourth performance of Le Malade Imaginaire, playing Argan the…
