The Council for Culture recently issued a positive recommendation on Frascati Producties. This was in line with the equally glowing assessment of Frascati from the Amsterdamse Kunstraad (Amsterdam Arts Council). In spite of this, the Council for Culture has decided not to allocate any subsidy to Frascati Producties. A decision that will have far-reaching consequences and an irreparable, devastating effect on the talent development chain.
The loss of Frascati Producties will be a huge blow to young makers graduating from specialist arts training in the future. For 20 years now, Frascati Producties has been a production house with a solid reputation that has spread far beyond the Netherlands. As Frascati Producties does not impose a profile of its own, many highly distinctive, trailblazing artists have launched their careers from here. These include Jetse Batelaan, Naomi Velissariou, Davy Pieters, Sadettin Kirmiziyüz, Suzanne Kennedy, Boogaerdt & Van der Schoot, Daria Bukvić, Marjolijn van Heemstra, Laura van Dolron, Esther Gerritsen, Ivana Muller and Florentina Holzinger.
Former Frascati Producties makers Jan Hulst and Kasper Tarenskeen have just joined Toneelgroep Oostpool and specially for our production house directed Frascati Fataal, a short film starring Halina Reijn and a large number of Frascati Producties makers. With the aim of addressing the politicians directly, asking: the existing theatre sector has largely been saved, but what about the future? Where can young, up-and-coming makers find a space? Where will they be able to nurture and develop their particular talents? Without a broad base, there can be no towering peaks. Save the young, future generations of makers. Save Frascati Producties.
