WACHT is performed by 17 trans and genderqueer young people ages 10 to 19.


WACHT is a performance about waiting. Waiting for others to be yourself, waiting for different times. Waiting to grow and become bigger. Waiting to grow up, waiting for what comes next, when you are an adult. When you get to decide for yourself. Waiting for permission. Who waits and who decides who waits? Who has the power to make you wait? Is waiting always necessary? And what do you do while you wait? 

WACHT is a performance about the urge to shorten the waiting time. About the life that grows while waiting, to begin what comes when the waiting is over.

Starnight: inclusive Disco series

Artistic direction: Otto Calmeijer Meijburg, Marius Lambertz, Filu (Hannah) Sampé 


The inclusive disco project ‘Starnight’ brings together queer party culture, disabled communities, and performance interventions. It originated from a joint desire to introduce the queer party scene of our own free time, to the disabled communities and scenes, that we have gotten to know through personal ties and our work with STARLAB. 


This disco series was a beautiful experiment (and starting point!) of mering different people of all ages, abilities, and gender expressions.

De Staat van de Mol

Part 1

Performed during the Land Art Festival 2022 


Concept & Performance: Otto Calmeijer Meijburg

Concept & Installation: Studio Berkveldt 


A site specific research as part of Flevolab ‘New Makers’ track. This lab connects artists from different disciplines and proposes an artistic research in the Dutch province ‘Flevoland’.


Flevoland, once the Zuiderzee but now an Aardzee. The mole came with the sand used to build the dikes and conquered the province at three kilometers per year. A very important animal for biodiversity but unwanted by many. Otto Calmeijer Meijburg and Studio Berkveldt examine the province through the eyes of this extraordinary animal, exposing the underground structures of the new land. In a site-specific investigation facilitated by the Flevolab New Makers trajectory, the two artists will experiment with installation, projection and sound, asking the audience to engage their own bodies and all their senses.

STERNA PAU Production

Three witches in a punk band. This piece moves between concert and theatre, exploring DIY music making and tracing the history of witchcraft back to our lineages, our stories, and our fights. The performers share their self written music and move between places of biography and fiction in order to end up where they are today: on this stage, performing in front of you.

A STARLAB production


Who does the stage belong to? Why do so many dream of fame? What would I say or do if I was suddenly on a large stage? Would I have something to say? Why is it sometimes so difficult to show yourself, and how do we want to be seen by others? Why are we always performing for others and when do we take a break? 


And what role does music play in all this? 
In 'Im Rampenlicht' four performers ask themselves  these and many other questions. While singing, improvising spoken word performances, dancing, acting and playing instruments they explore the spaces between dream and reality. They take the stage, just for tonight.
