Ilse graduated from the International Theatre school of Jacques Lecoq in Paris. She also trained together with Jack Waltzer, and followed several other workshops and trainings (full CV under her portret). Ilse worked and performed with different theatre companies such as the International Theatre company The Krumple, Bewegingskunst, Theatre Hotel Courage, Le Petit 8, Teatro Punto and Theatre L’epee de Bois where she played the main role at the Cartoucherie de Vincennes in Paris, directed by Antonio Diaz-Florien.  

As her passion for writing grew stronger over time, she decided to create her first ‘long’ solo called ‘My Electric House’ with music composed by Mascha van Nieuwkerk, and Vincent Vernerie as stage advisor. The first viewing of the show was presented in the Beatrix Theatre in Utrecht.

“Ilse Krabben is a comedic and dramatic force of nature. Rarely have I met an artist so uncompromising in her commitment to honesty, and boundless in her creativity.  There’s more to Ilse then meets the eye.”
~Jon Levin, Co-Artistic Director, Sinking Ship Productions, NYC.
