Sander Loonen

This Season

Powder Her Face


After a four-year apprenticeship at the Rotterdamse Schouwburg in the 1990s, Sander has developed as a true all-round technician and designer. He is equally versed in lighting, sound, video and staging and he fills the gap between artistic ambitions and technical feasibility.

He works with international creative teams on all aspects of live performance and installations, and has developed the ability to steer a production so that it becomes a fulfilling project. He has designed and managed lighting, video, sound and staging for a great variety of artists — Aakash Odedra, Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, English National Ballet, LA Dance Project, Boy Blue, Sarah Moeremans, Anish Kapoor, Emio Greco | PC, Aditi Mangaldas, Gregory Maqoma, Duckie, Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods, Serpentine Gallery, Productiehuis Rotterdam, Théâtre de la Ville Paris, National Architectural Institute Netherlands, National Ballet of Flanders and many, many others. He is making his Irish National Opera debut in Powder Her Face.
