Lotte van den Berg

Pleinvrees/Agoraphobia
Thu, Sept 20–Fri, Sept 21 at 3pm
Sat, Sept 22 at 11am & 3pm
Times Square

Award-winning director Lotte van den Berg has been making waves in Holland as one of a new generation of artists described as the ‘young Dutch minimalists’. In her performances she explores the power of movement with a profound intensity that is both joyfully uplifting and achingly forlorn. Resisting categorisation, Van den Berg’s work can nevertheless be characterised by a pared-down style with a devoted attention to detail. Preferring to do without texts, her work moves between the worlds of dance, film and theatre – creating a bold, fresh style that invites the audience to different perspectives and angles. She works with professional and non-professional actors, site-specific and in theatres and chooses to be inspired by what happens around us in everyday life.

Lotte van den Berg was born in Groningen in 1975. She studied Theatre Studies and Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam before being accepted at the Amsterdam School of the Arts, Theatre Direction in 1998. After graduating, Lotte immediately started working freelance as a director for different Flemish and Dutch companies. From 2005 till the beginning of 2009 she was resident director at Toneelhuis in Antwerp. In 2009 Lotte left Toneelhuis to become artistic director of a new structure called OMSK.
