About Me

Aster Fliers

I graduated from Theatre Studies at Utrecht University in december 2016, having previously studied costume design at Utrecht School of Arts. It’s since become obvious that I’m most comfortable somewhere in-between humanities theory and artistic craftspersonship, especially when this intersects with food. I’m currently experimenting with some exciting processes involving fermentation, nut-based cheesemaking and mould (the good kind). The truest piece of art I’ve ever created is probably a cashew-based washed-rind Limburger, or at least it’s the most accomplished one.

Education:

Utrecht University (UU) — MA Theatre Studies, 2015-2016 (3.81 GPA)

Work & experience:

My sister and I have been working together as vegan caterers at Zus&Zo since 2009.

Past projects and designs are featured on the portfolio page, including written works with a summary. A more encompassing summary of my MA thesis was published in the 9th issue of Danswetenschap in Nederland.

Other:

IELTS says that my English is as good as it can get according to their test: Band 9, Expert User. My French and German are nowhere near as good, but I did take them in high school. My Spanish is purely fictional.
