Fransje Christiaans is a theatre maker & visual artist.

She researches the world around her in order to create questioning, philosophical and hopefully funny works which eventually end up in a performance, installation or in art-direction.


Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.

– Susan Sontag
