is a foundation registered with the KAMER von KOOPHANDEL with the number: S 208209 and is based in Amsterdam, Holland with a distinguished board of three directors. Jan Meier, JG Baggerman and Dick Vos.

It's purpose is to further the arts in theatre, especially mime and physical theatre, and projects designed for film and video, by mounting performances for theatre, to direct groups or special projects, and to lead workshops to further communication between groups and between young people. Often performances and workshops have been led with all kinds of groups - the deaf, the blind, the disabled, professional theatre groups and performers, socially deprived groups and even pensioners.

Johnny Melville is the artistic director of the Stichting and the creative energy behind its projects.

It has been instrumental in organising workshop projects in Europe in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Denmark and Sweden; and also in Colombia, Brazil and Chile.

It has co - produced short films with Oerol festival Holland, Dinitri school in Lugano Switzerland and with Aarhus Film workshop in Denmark.




The number 3 of course has been regarded through history as an important magical number especially when doubled together (33). The number 3 is also an important part of the creative process. In comedy it is the third time around which punches the joke. I have to thank Sine in Denmark and Johnathon in New Zealand, Antoinette from Holland, & Ruby Patel from New York for their contributions to my list.
