Alumna of the Amsterdamse Toneelschool & Kleinkunstacademie (ATKA) Femke Arnouts can call herself the winner of the drama text stipend from Het Nationale Theater with her story ‘Alles waar je je op verheugde is afgelast’.
Femke Arnouts wrote the story after the call from Het Nationale Theater to submit stories that reflect on the (aftermath of the) corona crisis. It has become an absurd performance of what remains of life when the things you were looking forward to disappear.
Femke graduated from ATKA in 2017 and will receive € 7,500. The prize winner is commissioned to develop the synopsis under the supervision of a dramaturge from Het Nationale Theater into a text that will be performed in the program series Het Nationale Theater speelt altijd.
