In 2019 de KOE turns 30! To celebrate this, we go on tour with important pieces from our past such as Krenz and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Our grand finale is the new play ACHTER/AF, in which we look back at our past and forward to our future at the same time - thé jubilee piece of de KOE. On top of that, we've planned a special performance of De Gebiologeerden, the very first piece of de KOE, on 27, 28 and 29 May.
And there's more: after 30 years of playwriting, we finally try our hand at a book! A book which asks the question how de KOE would make a book, a play on paper, an erratic and surprising work in which Peter, Natali and Willem give you a unique look at their philosophy and way of working. In short: a jubilee book only de KOE could have made. We proudly present this work in may 2019. Would you like to be first? Fill in this form and we'll keep you posted as soon as your very own copy is available.
Peter Van den Eede and Bas Teeken meet at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp, then headed by Dora Van der Groen. Two years after they graduate, they make De Gebiologeerden. The premiere, on May 27th 1989 in the Zwarte Zaal (Black Room) of the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp, marks the beginning of Cie. de KOE.
In 90-91 de KOE – under the aegis of the theater company De Tijd – goes on tour with a reworked and stripped-down version of De Gebiologeerden, which receives raving reviews and makes a name for the company.
