('s-Heer Abtskerke, 1981) studied at the Cabaret Academy in Rotterdam and the Koningstheaterakademie in Den Bosch. February 2005 she won both the Jury and the Audience Prizes of the prestigious Leiden Caberet Festival. Since then she tours the Dutch and Flemish theatre circuit ('Dullard Polderman is one of the best kept secrects of theatres in The Netherlands and Belgium. Yet she made already four stage productions loaded with happy cynicism, subtle clumsiness, engagement, striking observations and well-build songs', she writes about herself). Polderman made television programmes for Dutch regional broadcaster Omroep Zeeland. She published columns in, among others, daily newspapers Spits and Trouw and currently in theater magazine Scenes. She write songs for Radio 5 cabaret programme Andermans Veren and for NTR's 'Snapjes', short educational songs awarded with the Cinekid Gouden Kinderkast Prize. During the theatre season 2016-2017, Polderman plays her production Polderman Tiert Welig (Flourish with exuberance) throughout The Netherlands and Belgium, while writing for and performing in a play with composer Jorrit Tamminga and video artist Menno de Nooijer.
