Igor Vrebacs is Bosnian and Dutch and was trained as a mime player, but he is now doing very well as a budding theater maker. In his work he explores the clichés around gender by wondering to what extent we can transform our perception of identity. With his directorial debut Macho Macho (2016) he won the Dioraphte ‘Best of Amsterdam Fringe’ award. For this performance Vrebac took inspiration from Instagram selfies, Turkish wrestling and the idea of bromance, to explore the essence of masculinity. In 2017 he made TRAENS, a sexy ritual to identify masculinity and femininity. He plans to make a new production in autumn 2018 as part of his production ambitions with artistic partner and production house De Nieuwe Oost in Arnhem.
Igor was our guest in the ‘Tools for engagement programme: Three Stories about sex, rituals and intimacy.’
