Amanda Dekker is a theatre maker originally from the Netherlands. She moved to Norway in 2018. Her major study has been Theatre in education, with minors in directing and theatre masks.
As a maker she is always searching for the artist's physicality.Her attitude while creating theatre is that, although she is the director, everyone is a maker, a co-creator.
The most interesting aspect of making a performance for her is to work with different disciplines and experience how they come together in one piece.
This year she decided to produce a performance based on the script "The Bear" by Anton Tsjekhov. She made a new version of this comedy with three actors, two dancers and two musicians (cello and guitar)
A creditor, his debtor and her faithful servant are locked into an absurd battle in 19th century Russia, where a "bear" is the worst it can be. Grief, duty and desperation clash in this multidisciplinary interpretation of Tsjekhov.
