In 2004 designers Martine Decroos en Philippe Van de Velde founded Studio ORKA. a collective of designers and actors. They create site specific theatre; story and design arise inspired by a location. The stage designs are ORKA’s hallmark: playful and poetic. ORKA creates an entire world, an environment for actors and audience to get lost in. ORKA creates performances for children and adults. The synergy between inspiring locations, layered stories, ‘difficult’ themes being addressed with a sense of humour, the poetic strength of the decor, the challenge of theatre codes, the genuine performance pleasure results into the unique artistic DNA of ORKA. ORKA, being a youth theatre company as well as a theatre company tout court, is well known and valued in both Belgium as abroad, and has been invited to many festivals.
