Joachim Robbrecht works as a theatremaker, performer and playwright in Belgium and the Netherlands.

His work is text-based and evolves around questions on cultural identity, ethical and social sensitivity, historical narration and awareness (among other things). Collaborating with performers of various educational backgrounds (dance, theatre and visual arts) he seeks to create a theatre that combines sensorial experience with narration and semiotic deciphering. Robbrecht’s work is driven as much by the need to poetically reflect upon themes of topical social relevance as by the desire to experiment with structures of story-telling and world-building, with the tools, codes and conventions of performing arts, and with modes of presentation and representation.

Besides creating performances independently, he co-produces and collaborates as a writer and performer with artists of various fields and producers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, such as Sarah Moeremans, Timothy de Gilde, Artun Alaska Arasli, Jan Brokof, Dood Paard, de Warme Winkel, Andcompany&co, Wunderbaum, tgOostpool. He has written plays and libretti for Toneelgroep Amsterdam, NTGent, Silbersee, Dood Paard and Dox Utrecht. His work and collaborations are being presented mainly in the Netherlands at venues such as Frascati Amsterdam, Rotterdamse Schouwburg and many more. Besides he has performed and/or shown work at various festivals and venues abroad such as Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels-BE), theatre confrontations festival (Lublin-PL), Hebbel-am-Ufer (Berlin-DE), Garaj Istanbul (TR), BRUT (Vienna-AT).

Since 2010 he has been involved in education at the University of Amsterdam, the University of the Arts in Arnhem (NL), KASK in Ghent (BE), Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen and Master in Expanded Theatre in Bern (CH).

Some of his plays are published by De Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek and can be ordered at www.denieuwetoneelbibliotheek.nl.
