As a director, Stijn Dijkema (27) is very aware of the world and time in which we live. He has a strong penchant for the existing repertoire. The old stories provide a firm footing, at the same time, create a certain kind of distance to the present time. This gives the audience the space and opportunity to reflect on the contemporary through these old stories. Because Dijkema always starts from a social imperative and then chooses a radical form to match it, his work is not unambiguous. He has directed, among other things, text theatre, dance films, location theatre and events.
