TAMTAM objektentheater has been making visual theatre with found objects as main characters since 1979. Image based performances, usually without text. Small and large productions that are a crossover between theatre, visual arts, video and music. A very personal and peculiar style of object art in which objects, materials, light, sound, music, inventive stage-technology and decor tell the story.
Gérard Schiphorst and Marije van der Sande are the founders, artists and performers.
With their work they travelled to theatres and festivals in 34 countries, where they are well known for their esthetic style, subtle humour and originality.
Next to theatre they are also active in writing, music, video, plastic art and children’s literature. In their workshop in Deventer they produce theatre and art and receive groups for special performances workshops and masterclasses.
