Ruimtevaarders is the name of the stage design duo Karolien De Schepper and Christophe Engels. They have been designing spatial projects for festivals (Theatre Festival), theatre (SKaGeN’ Wonderland and Almschi!), museum exhibits (Military Museum), exhibitions, temporary installations (de Nachten, MAS, deSingel Art City) and events (2008 Cultural Awards) since 2008. Combining their skills as a qualified architect and an artist, Karolien and Christophe decide how they will use the parameters of (a) space. Their spatial interventions have an infectious effect on the venues, stages and theatres where they stage their interaction. They are firm believers in transience, gravity, proportions and chance. Apart from Ruimtevaarders, Karolien works as assistant stage designer at La Monnaie/De Munt and Christophe works as a freelance artist, photographer, 3D designer and website designer.
