Research residency

! Suspended due to the outbreak of COVID-19 !

Ever since she was a child Annelies Van Hullebusch has produced all kinds of booklets. Booklets with clippings and paste, full of old and new memories.

Creative traces of these booklets are her first performances in which Annelies takes the audience into her world in an intimate way – each under her own reading lamp. The 30 spectators experience a tangible experience, consisting of different media (audio, images, …). For the next steps in her artistic practice, Annelies translates this more individual experience into the context of the small theatre space. How can you preserve this intimate, personal experience in a theatre? How do you create your own world while others surround you?

During her research residency at wpZimmer, Annelies is preparing the first tests towards this creation.

Annelies Van Hullebusch

Annelies Van Hullebusch graduated as a performer at the Maastricht Theater Academy in 2009. She is a storyteller and visual theater maker. She made Dorp, Stad, Het is een wonder dat we nog leven, and In Kaart. Her performances are characterized by a great love of detail and imagination. On the basis of objects, maps, models, but also interviews, radio plays and sketchbooks, she always looks for the best form that her visual world needs. She takes time for that. Her work is her life. Her life and the world (that surrounds her), her work.
