Talent of the future
Alongside a performance venue attracting broad interest, Frascati is the biggest internationally operating production house in the Netherlands, providing support to theatre-makers both from the Netherlands and abroad. Frascati makers defy categorisation, working in a diverse range of disciplines and seeking out cross-overs between these: they go their own way, blazing new trails into the future. Their work emerges from the rapidly changing urban environment and is often socially committed with a ‘documentary’ approach. From text-based theatre to performance, dance and mime. From the big stage to theatre on location and smaller-scale solos.
Frascati Producties helped launch theatre-makers who have gone on to receive high praise such as Ariah Lester, Marcus Azzini, Jetse Batelaan, Maren E. Bjørseth, Andrea Bozic, Daria Bukvic, Ivo Dimchev, Jefta van Dinther, Laura van Dolron, Pere Faura, Marjolijn van Heemstra, Julian Hetzel, Florentina Holzinger, Susanne Kennedy, Sadettin Kırmızıyüz, Lucas De Man, Jan Martens, Hannah De Meyer, Ivana Muller, Davy Pieters, andcompany&Co., Julie Van den Berghe, Michele Rizzo, Joachim Robbrecht, Sabri Saad el Hamus, Naomi Velissariou and Eric de Vroedt.
During the 2019-2020 season, works we produced included the latest from Charli Chung, Jouman Fattal, Marijn Graven, Jan Hulst & Kasper Tarenskeen, Yinka Kuitenbrouwer, Stephen Liebman, Cherish Menzo, Florian Myjer, Anoek Nuyens, La Isla Bonita and Priscilla Vaudelle. As part of our regular cooperation with Amsterdam Cultural Centres, we also support the work of Abdelkarim el Baz and Perry Gits.
We provided support to dramatic writers Esther Duysker, Sytske van Koeveringe, Randa Peters and Bart van den Donker. In addition, makers including Alexandra Broeder, Elike Roovers & Rutger Esajas, Hanna Timmers, Timo Tembuyser & Naomi Steijger, Fatima Elatik & Hassnae Bouazza and Zola Can worked on Frascati’s programme series De (on)vertelde Stad (the (un)told city).
