CAROLIEN CANTERS - CHOREOGRAPHER

Feature: QETC, AMSTERDAM'S LEADING LGBTQI+ THEATRE COMPANY IS CELEBRATING ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR AND  at Sofitel Grand Hotel!

We are delighted to announce that joining the creative team is Amsterdam-based and highly respected choreographer Carolien Canters, an alumni of the Amsterdam University of the Arts. During her star-studded, many-faceted international career she has choreographed for TV, Opera, Film and many musicals. She has worked with directors Anthony Van Laast, Koen Van Dijk and been associated with both M-Lab and Opus ONE productions in The Netherlands. She has previously worked on many award winning productions of musicals such as The Wild Party, The Color Purple and Fun Home. (Fun Home was awarded Best Musical at the Dutch Musical Awards). (The Show at the Grand is choreographed by Andrea Sujkowski).

Feature: QETC, AMSTERDAM'S LEADING LGBTQI+ THEATRE COMPANY IS CELEBRATING ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR AND  at Sofitel Grand Hotel! Cabaret is the show that changed musical theatre forever! Set in pre-World War II Berlin against the backdrop of the rise of fascism, it is an unforgettable tale of decadence, self-discovery and romance. With songs like Willkommen, Money, Tomorrow Belongs to Me and the eponymous Cabaret, QETC"s witty production is packed with satirical lyrics and heart-stopping performances, and promises to be the highlight of QETC's 20th anniversary season! QETC"s uniquely queer production takes inspiration from the original Berlin books by Christopher Isherwood. As a young gay writer he finally found the sexual liberation he was denied in Great Britain. His observations led to the creation of extraordinary characters such as Sally Bowles. From the poignant friendship of Sally and Cliff, to the racy interactions with the Emcee and the audience and the debauchery of the famous Kit Kat Club, !Cabaret" evokes the spirit of the age, and promises to entertain and shock audiences in equal measure.

The current London production, starring Jessie Buckley and Eddie Redmayne, won 7 Olivier awards! The 1972 film won 8 Oscars. Previous QETC productions include The 39 Steps, Talking Heads, The Importance of Being Earnest, Scary Bikers, One Man, Two Guvnors, The History Boys (Netherlands" premiere), Bedroom Farce (produced by Xaviera Hollander) and Little Shop of Horrors (directed by Barrie Stevens).

In 2020 maakte acteur, zanger en multi-instrumentalist Diederick Ensink zijn debuut met zijn solovoorstelling. Diederick had een creatieve manier gevonden om een compleet live orkest op het toneel te zetten. Een orkest dat bestaat uit Diederick zelf. Waar hij vorig jaar in zijn eentje tien instrumenten bespeelde is hij dat aantal nu voorbij. Vanaf oktober 2022 is hij in twintig theaters opnieuw te zien met zijn muzikale onemanshow; DIEDERICK'S DEBUUT.
