Muriel Ramuz

Head of Production

Theatertapas is all about innovative ideas that require a practical view. Our inventive head of production Muriel is responsible for making some of these ideas a reality.
She is self-dependent, approachable and loves a hard day's work and therefore plays important role in both the organisation of Theatertapas as well as the actual festival.


Andrea Hooymans

Artistic Director

Every year Theatertapas tries to improve and renew itself and this year the festial develops under the supervision of artistic director Andrea. She is a motivated businesswoman able to connect people with keen enthusiasm. Internally she mainly focuses on the flourishing of our young professionals. This has resulted in the motivated project group introduced above.
This engaged member of the board proudly presents and represents Theatertapas.

Fred Dijkstra

Master of Coin

The succes of Theatertapas is also being made possible by the skills of our business director Fred. By means of  tight schedules and his ability to preserve the overall picture he brings calmness in a creative chaos. His longstanding experience as a financial controller is very valuable as well as essential for our business policy.
