About Marcel van der Pol

Marcel van der Pol

Marcel van der Pol

My name is Marcel van der Pol. In 1997 I founded Keridwen. I am teacher, performer and play director. I professionally help and support both individuals and organisations (governmental, profit and non profit) in letting off their unproductive fixed patterns. I assist them in finding different perspectives in their current situations for developing new insights and finding better solutions. Alternately I perform as teacher, coach, consultant, mediator, facilitator, storyteller and play director.


I combine my scientific background with my passion for narrative theatre into the Self Directing 3.3 / System Directing 4.3 concept.
This Directing Concept consists of three basis methods: (1) The Dance of the Hero, (2) Sentry & Lamppost, (3) The Gordian Egg.

Keridwen operates in several countries (Europa, Afrika). We focus on Sustainable Entrepreneurship, Community Empowerment and Life Long Learning.
