Nathan Ooms (1996) obtained his master's degree in Drama at School of Arts | KASK Ghent in 2019. Together with Anna Franziska Jäger, he created the performance As a matter of fiction in 2018, in which they provided a theatrical mirror to the novel Beware of Pity (Ungeduld des Herzens) by Stefan Zweig. The following year they collaborated on Some Things Last A Long Time, Nathan's master's thesis. Although the collaboration between Nathan and Anna Franziska thrives on mutually divergent interests within the theatre, they share a common ground in the importance of the body as a measure for relating to the world and in the question of how fiction can serve as a means of dealing with the abstract to speak. Nathan did an internship with Ula Sickle where he worked on the performance Relay (2018) and was seen in the 2018-2019 season in the production Drawings by Marc Vanrunxt. He is currently following the STUDIOS program at P.A.R.T.S..
