Coming from an American background via her mother, and a Dutch background via her father, Anneke brings an enthusiasm for all things American and Dutch to the Institute. She graduated from the Universiteit Leiden with a BA in Art History and an MA in North American Studies. Her MA thesis focused on the way in which Hamilton: An American Musical can be placed in the Founder’s Chic tradition of American history. She is both cast- and board member of Theatergroep SPOT, based in the Hague, and board member of the Alumni foundation of her former student society V.S.L. Catena. As an extra project she is part of the cast for the new Dutch musical Man op Duivelseiland, which premiers in June.
