Founded in 2008, Das Fräulein (Kompanie) is designed to develop and promote the work of Belgian artist Anne-Cécile Vandalem. The resulting creations are original works that the artist conceives, writes and directs. Das Fräulein (Kompanie) is currently subsidized by the Federation Wallonia-Brussels.

In 2003, Anne-Cécile Vandalem began to create and write plays: Zaï Zaï Zaï Zaï (2003) and Hansel and Gretel (2005) with Jean-Benoît Ugeux. Already, fiction is her preferred medium and her essential means of expression.

From 2008 to 2013, habitation plays a major role. The artist sees it as the perfect place of confinement, by which and with which everything happens. Starting from an ultra-realistic universe, Anne-Cécile defines the framework of so-called domestic tragedies, within an individual frame with (Self) Service, a family one with HABIT(U)ATION and a collectives one with After The Walls (UTOPIA).

But Looking for DYSTOPIA, hinge show currently being written, opens a new cycle of work for the artist.

In 2014, Anne-Cécile Vandalem leads off exploring the modalities of posture and imposture. She questions the subject/individual’s capacity for action and transformation of reality within different societal spheres, and addresses the issue of disclosure and fragility as honest posture and / or strategic one in her writing. Her new productions  Still too sad to tell youTRISTESSES and WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?  testify in their own way these new aesthetic concerns.
