Her current work focuses on issues such as identity politics, the place of queer identities in our society, and the visibility of female narratives on our stages. She aims to make work that speaks to a wide range of individuals, making the above mentioned themes accessible to most, if not all. She believes in the ability of theatre to address a multiplicity of intricate themes at the same time, all layered on top of one another like the skins of an onion. Her choices of texts include "well made plays", contemporary texts as well as classics, mainly from an English or Dutch theatre context. She loves a bit of weird humor, theatre should (again) be a playful, and wondrous place. Let's not take ourselves so seriously.
