About Jacqueline and Lulu:
Jacqueline van de Geer:
Originally from the Netherlands, I have crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 2005 to live and work in Montreal. I have completed a Bachelor in Visual Arts as well as a Bachelor in Performance Arts in my home country. I performed in Canada, Europe and the USA so far.
My practice draw inspiration from universal themes such as heritage, family, democracy, warring and the politics of exclusion.
It is important to me to surprise myself in my process and to share this exiting feeling of 'the unexpected' with the participants, who witness my work, when it is ready to be seen. Creating
intimacy, garnering trust and at revealing the 'unsettling' are critical to my performance practice.
I speak four languages and I often feel blessed.
Lulu Obermayer has worked and lived in Munich, New York, Glasgow, Leipzig, Berlin and Los Angeles. From a young age on she has been singing, acting, dancing and performing professionally. Since then she studied method acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute and completed her Ba hons in Contemporary Performance Practice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and holds a master’s degree in solo dance and authorship from the university of the arts Berlin.
She is about to finish her Puccini trilogy with The Girl(s) of the Golden West — an adaptation from the opera La Fanciulla del West, after Tosca ( Berlin, Brussels, Leipzig, Bordeaux) and Manon Lescaut (Münchner Kammerspiele and HAU2 Berlin). In her performances, she employs the dramatic canon and isolates female characters from their plots with the aim of allowing them a new ontological inquiry, creating emotional landscapes which oscillate between theater and durational performance.
