program and poster for Mickerytheater, 1971
At Mickery in Loenersloot, the foundations were laid for a pioneering international centre for avant-garde drama, performance art and experience theatre avant la lettre. Ritsaert ten Cate was the driving force. The breakthrough of Mickery came in 1967, when Ten Cate succeeded in booking the New York theatre company La Mama. Their involvement, the intensity with which they acted and the social commitment of their shows were eye openers for both spectators and reviewers. After several years, Mickery moved to Amsterdam. I was allowed to make the posters and other printed matter.
