Suzan Boogaerdt

Suzan Boogaerdt is part of the performance duo Boogaerdt/VanderSchoot (BVDS), alongside Bianca van der Schoot. The duo was founded in 2001. Based on the anarchic tradition of Dutch mime, BVDS developed a practice that combines several art disciplines and challenges the assumptions of theatrical space, with a particular focus on real encounters with the audience. Boogaerdt and van der Schoot have been working together since they graduated from the Mime Department of the Theaterschool Amsterdam in 2000. In 2017, BVDS presented the first Dutch entry for the Venice Theatre Biennale (2017). In 2015 they presented their work at the Ruhrtriennale together with Susanne Kennedy. Numerous other collaborations with Kennedy followed, such as Women in Trouble (2017), Coming Society (2019) and Ultraworld (2020) at Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. For the past eight years, BVDS has also been associated with the Dutch theatre companies TG Oostpool and Theater Rotterdam.
