New managing director

On March 1st, Maite Garcia Lechner will start as our new managing director. We are very happy to welcome her at the Ulrike Quade Company! For the past 11 years Maite has worked at the European Cultural Foundation as a programme manager. In this job she was responsible for among other the development and budget management of ECF programs. Maite succeeds interim business manager Ina de Boer. Ina – who has been working for the Company since the departure of Rutger Gernandt – will remain involved as controller.

Maite: ‘For years at ECF, I have been involved in the realization of projects from the perspective of a foundation that on the one hand financially supports initiatives and on the other hand develops programs. The switch to Ulrike Quade Company feels like an opportunity to be even closer to the fire: the art practice itself. I am really looking forward to making the worlds that Ulrike Quade and her talented Company create possible from the business side.’

UQC is moving

The current workshop and office of Ulrike Quade Company has become to small for our fast growing company. Therefore we leave our beautiful, cozy atelier in the center behind and move to Amsterdam West for more space and new possibilities. With our move we do not only create more space for growing core of the company, but also make room for new flexible workplaces for the Q-Academy. Our new studio is located on the Jan Tooropstraat 73-75, 1061 AA Amsterdam. We hope to see you soon!

Please note that during our move, we cannot be reached at our company telephone number. Please use the cell phone numbers of the employees, as they are displayed on the contact page.

The start of a new theater season

Theater season 2016/2017 has really begun after the Uitmarkt and the opening of the Dutch Theater Festival. Last weekend all the performances on Theaterfestival de Parade received a price: De Mus. A nice gesture of the festival because of the subsidy difficulties in our sector. We also received a great compliment of newspaper Het Parool who recommended our performance ‘De Nieuwe Rus’ in it’s article about The Parade. Later this month our tour of The Wall starts in Corrosia Theater, Expo & Film in Almere. Check our agenda for all our performances.
