Joke studied at the Theatre Academy in Maastricht and is responsible for the theatre courses at WISPER in Ghent. As a landscape architect, she spent years creating places where children and adults can play. In the meantime, she exchanged the plants for the stage, where she brings playing people together. Although she sometimes dares to mix her passions, for example by creating a theatrical performance in nature. She is non stop theatre hungry and a passionate reader of theatre texts and other beautiful things.
