Ondervinden’s aims are simple: to create entertaining and curious work that re-encounters well-known stories from previously sidelined or silenced perspectives.

Our productions are more than straight-forward adaptations, they are innovative responses and original creations that challenge the outmoded hierarchies that have shaped storytelling in the past.

We re-encounter the challenging issues and stories that we find around us and deliver them to our audience, full of heart and defiant imagination.

‘Ondervinden’ is a Dutch word meaning ‘encounter’ – the specific moment of contact where two things meet each other.

Our company is all about creating a moment of entertainment where each night, actors and audience re-encounter a great story from a new perspective, to look at the familiar and see it’s previously undiscovered dark sides, hidden back-stories, or silenced voices.
