Frans Poelstra

Frans Poelstra graduated at the Theaterschool (SNDO) in Amsterdam. In 2003 he started to work with performer/writer Robert Steijn. They presented their work in theatres, galleries and festivals in Europe and the USA and in Austria in TQW, brut, steirischer herbst, etc. Since 2004 he lives in Vienna and besides his work with Robert Steijn he collaborates with local artists, Andrea Maurer, Simon Mayer, Christine Gaigg, Navaridas & Deutinger, MAD dance company and the youth theatre company schallundrauch agency. He is also making solo performances, which are often based on autobiographical material in which he mixes dance, (live) music, video and text in a way which makes people think: "Do I dream, is this really possible or at least acceptable?". His last production "FIVE" had its premiere in brut in December 2016.
He has been giving workshops at different institutions in Europe (SNDO-Amsterdam, Tanzquartier Wien, SEAD-Salzburg, CNDC-Angers, Tanzfabrik-Berlin, Theatre Academy Helsinki, etc.).
