Ulrike Quade is one of Holland’s most outstanding visual theatre makers. She has created her personal theatrical signature by combining puppetry, dance, (physical)theatre and scenography. She consistently explores her personal theatrical language, in which the expressive power of visual images is of the greatest importance. The productions speak directly to audiences through their intensity and openness, and in the surprising way that objects and subjects come to life.
The performances of Ulrike Quade are a combination of sculpture and dance, mime and performance, language and music. Sometimes going solo, sometimes together with other performers and musicians. And there’s always a story. This theater is engaged, but also, surprisingly nimble, surreal, ironic, poetic.
