Lisaboa Houbrechts & studenten theaterscholen

Lisaboa Houbrechts (b. 1992) obtained her Master’s in Drama from the School of Arts|KASK Ghent in 2016. She is a writer and director. Until 2019 she was a member of the artists’ collective Kuiperskaai, which she founded together with Victor Lauwers, Romy Louise Lauwers and Oscar van der Put in 2012. Houbrechts evokes history and classical repertoire through a ritual deed and humankind in a series of passions. The productions Lisaboa Houbrechts made with Kuiperskaai were baroque and brazen but also playful and disarming. With Bruegel(2019) – the first work she made under her own name – Lisaboa Houbrechts struck out in a new path. “Charming and challenging theatre,” said De Morgen of this total spectacle. It is Lisaboa’s most personal work thus far.
