Nineties Productions

Nineties Productions is a performance collective based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They create theater shows that use elements of performance art, concerts, pop culture, literature and visual art. Icons, movements, or subcultures from the past are used to reflect on the world we now live in. With the integration of live music, Nineties produces site specific crossover theater. The collective is comprised of performance makers Yannick Noomen, Anne Maike Mertens and Floor Houwink ten Cate. For each show Nineties collaborates with different guest actors, musicians and set designers. Nineties is not connected to one specific theater but loves to work nomadically, always looking for new spaces to perform and to reach a new kind of audience.


“We want to create performances that offer our audience the depth of art with the accessibility of popular culture. At a pop concert, banker and carpenter, postman and astronaut stand side by side, connected by music. We seek that same magic in theater.”

"The Raw music and moving songs form a powerfull diesel; a mix of country, hiphop, Tom Waits and David Bowie."

Annette Embrechts on Billy the Kid – Volkskrant 2018

"Noir is both a juicy scifi-revue and a hypersatire on the current confusing times."

Vincent Kouters on Noir – Volkskrant 2018

"The irony of the setting, the lightly nipping sarcasm, the mild friendliness of a futuristic radicalism, and a subcutaneous anarchistic anger are kept in great balance, without the traps of moralistic slobber."

Loek Zonneveld about Nacht van de Collectieven – Theaterkrant 2016

“The three members bring a catching mix of music and surrealistic story telling to the stage."

Kester Freriks about We Are Here – Theaterkrant 2016

"The occasional band Charlie and the Bukowski’s has put the writings of the dirty old man on catchy EDM, with synthesizer (Yannick Noomen), Eurodance-beats (Jimi Zoet), rap (Ludwig Bindervoet) and cello and sultry singing (Charlie Dagelet)."

Joke Beeckmans about Naar Bukowski – Theaterkrant 2015

“A show full of exploding energy, laughter and 'historical' very accurate. This was a big party and a trip back to memory lane."

Cultuurpodium Online about Nineties – 2013

"In the presence of a live studio audience they create pure magic: a very entertaining anarchistic potpourri that transforms into a lyrical happening by briljant editing.”
