Studio Scarabee was a Dutch experimental theatre group originating in the Hague, 1965. The core founders were Adri Boon, Jan van As and Raf Thunnissen, whose aim was to form a new theatrical form utilizing multi-media, resulting in a series of productions that unfolded to the spectator like a peep-box full of tableaux vivants. In the words of Boon himself, "In the literary theater there is a certain tension that is determined by the text, by the given, by the way it is brought in. Our starting point is primarily a visual tension, similar to what happens in a painting or sculpture. We overtake the hierarchy of art disciplines through music, image , text, decor, movement and light and to treat the actors equally."
