Mart van Berckel

Director

he/him

Mart van Berckel studied piano, music theater and directing at ArtEZ Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (Arnhem) and the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (Zurich). His graduation performance “PLAY MAIDS” won the audience award at festival Körber Studio Junge Regie in Hamburg in 2016. In recent years, he has directed performances at for example, De Nieuwe Oost, KASKO, Theater Sonnevanck, Noord Nederlands Toneel and Club Guy & Roni. At De Nationale Opera he worked as assistant director with Lotte de Beer and Robert Wilson.  

Mart’s work is visual, poetic, and boundlessly imaginative. He digs right through the canon of visual art, film, classical music, and literature and shapes sources of inspiration into theatrical collages in his own idiosyncratic and associative way. Mart works like a composer and visual artist: with great precision, an eye for detail, and musicality, he harmonizes image, sound, text, light, and movement. In this way, his performances develop into sensory theater trips, which go beyond reason and directly hit you in the gut.  

Mart directs in a wide range of genres and disciplines: from visual theater to opera, youth musical theater, and dance performance. From 2021 on, he will be a regular creator connected with NITE: National Interdisciplinary Theater Ensemble in Groningen. In season ‘22-’23, he directed at NITE and De Nationale Opera, and made his debut in Germany with the Staatsoper Hamburg. 

His history with NITE is not limited. He previously made (in collaboration with Angela Herenda) Seven Last Songs, All That Follows, De Parade hit Carry/Jump/Catch and My First Tragedy: Iphigeneia. Now in season ’24-’25 it is time for Ocean Breeze; a mid hall performance that will tour throughout the country.
