Once starting as a joke during my undergraduate studies, the Knapsters haircutting show turned out as a success on stages throughout the Netherlands (het Rozentheater, Breakfestival, Lowlands, Rockit!, Melkweg, Tivoli Utrecht etc.). In 2007 Tessel Schmidt (alles met video), Gian van Grunsven (dramaturg, presenter, improviser and concept-creator) and me started the company metDressing to invent and promote different performances for cultural events. Since 2010, I'm no longer partner due to my other professional activities but metDressing keeps being active in the cultural field with a bunch of fresh and charming female performers.
