You may call Mariëlle Verdijk (Boxmeer, 1969) a jack of all trades. Trained as scenographer she has worked as (stage)designer, arts-programmer, bookkeeper, dishwasher, cook and cheesemaker. Recently she obtained a MA in Arts, Culture and Society and has started writing stuff. To train her un-becoming as individual, she is an active member of TRICKSTER, an multidisciplined performance collective with a focus on group-dynamics and instant collaboration. All her work is aimed at simple gestures and tactility. Although she feels that the power of materiality is generally severely underestimated, she also loves words.
