In 1965, Ritsaert ten Cate founded the Mickery Theatre of which he was artistic leader and inspirator. His theatre began in a farm in Loenersloot and settled at the Rozentheater in Amsterdam. Numerous international theatre groups, directors and performers who played there – including La Mamma and The Wooster Group from New York, the Traverse Theatre from Edinburgh and Bread and Puppet from San Francisco – helped to shape the Dutch cultural climate. Ten Cate was director, actor, impresario, designer and scriptwriter as well as producer. His archive, library and a variety of artworks were deposited with his gallery. Ten Cate gave lectures, published and was the linchpin in a vast art world both here and abroad. In 1993 he established DasArts, Amsterdam's interdisciplinary training programme. In 1999 he joined the Rijksakademie, shifted his focus to the visual arts and organised a vast number of exhibitions of his own, and other artists', work. He combined an array of materials and techniques varying from assemblages to photo collages and ready-mades. His subject matter dealt with conflicts – wars, ethnic cleansing, human suffering and violent conflict.
Ritsaert ten Cate was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 2002-2003.
He won the Sphinx Cultuurprijs (NL) in 1996, the Sandbergprijs (NL) also in 1996 and the Bannink Cock Medal (NL) in 2000.
