Culture doesn’t stop at the border; it benefits from open exchange.

Entr’act was founded in December 2010 by Casper de Vries and Claudia Geubel with the aim to facilitate and support festivals and companies. They accompany artists from all over Europe and help them travel beyond their own borders. They speak Dutch, English, French, German and (un poco) Spanish. 

Casper de Vries has over 25 years of experience in outdoor theater and worked for several festivals and projects in different roles including La Strada Bremen, Spoffin, Keistadfeesten, KoresponDance and most recently for Kleines Fest im Großen Garten. Casper likes to thank theater company The Lunatics for planting the theater seed in his system in the mid-nineties.

Claudia Geubel was happily contaminated with the outdoor theater virus while working as a volunteer for Festival Etcetera in Amersfoort. It led her to programming Amersfoorts Theater Terras for 7 years and her involvement with Festival Spoffin until a few years ago. Besides Entr’act Claudia works for Circuspunt and for Belangenvereniging Buitentheater respectively the national associations for Circus and for Outdoor Arts artists in the Netherlands.

Together they created and produced the festival The Garden of Delights, which ran from 2006 till 2019.

How do we work?

For companies: As Entr’act we link ourselves to a company and together we set out a path to help them on their way. It’s only natural that it is the company who pays us for our help, not the festival that hires the company.

For festivals: we are happy to advise festivals with their programming. And we do not hesitate to look further than just our “own” shows. We travel all over Europe to really get to know the festivals in order to be able to give the best advice possible, taking into account the type of public, the locations and the goals of each individual festival.
