Cox Habbema (1944-2016) was a Dutch actress, stage director, writer, and former managing director of the Municipal Theater in Amsterdam. From 1969 till 1984 she mainly lived and worked in East-Berlin, where she appeared in several films. Among her Dutch films is the controversial thriller De stilte rond Christine M./A Question of Silence (1982). Cornelia ‘Cox’ Habbema was born in Amsterdam in 1944. Her brother is TV and stage director Eddy Habbema. She studied history and for a short while law and then went to the Toneelschool Amsterdam (the Amsterdam Theatre School), where she studied acting and directing. She made her stage debut at Toneelgroep Centrum (Theatre Group Centre). Her first film appearance was in the Dutch New Wave production Heart Beat Fresco (Pim de la Parra, 1966), two years later followed by To Grab the Ring (Nikolai van der Heijde, 1968). Meanwhile, she was a stage intern of theatre companies in London, Paris, Italy, and Berlin. In Germany, she was offered the leading role in the DEFA production Wie heiratet man einen König?/How To Marry a King (Rainer Simons, 1968) opposite the German actor Eberhard Esche. He also became her husband. From 1969 till 1984 she mainly lived and worked in East-Berlin. During this period she was an actress and director for the legendary Deutsches Theater (German Theatre). With Eberhard Esche, she also made a series of productions with classical ballads and Heine poems. She was both director and singer-performer for these productions. During the 1970s, Cox Habbema played in Dutch and Belgian films and TV series as well as in (East-)German productions. Among her German productions are the crime film Der Mörder sitzt im Wembley-Stadion/The Murder is sitting in Wembley Stadium (Gerhard Respondek, 19670), the Sci-Fi film Eolomea (Herrmann Zschoche, 1972) opposite Bulgarian actor Ivan Andonov, and the medieval adventure tale Till Eulenspiegel (Rainer Simon, 1974). On TV she appeared in the popular Krimi series Polizeiruf 110/Police Call 110 (1973). She also worked regularly in Belgium, where she played in films like Ieder van ons/Everyone of us (Frans Buyens, 1971) and the TV Series Centraal Station/Central Station (Paul Cammermans, 1974). In the 1970s there was a revival of the Dutch cinema and Cox Habbema starred in such productions as the thriller Rufus (Samuel Meyering, 1975) between Rijk de Gooyer and John van Dreelen, the drama Kind van de Zon/Child of the sun (René van Nie, 1975), De komst van Joachim Stiller/The Arrival of Joachim Stiller (Harry Kumel, 1976), and Dokter Vlimmen/Doctor Vlimmen (Guido Pieters, 1977). She appeared opposite Husband Eberhard Esche in the Defa productions Leben mit Uwe/Life with Uwe (Lothar Warneke, 1974), Die unverbesserliche Barbara/The Incorrigible Barbara (Lothar Warneke, 1977), also with Hertha Thiele, and the fantasy Der Spiegel des großen Magus/The Mirror of the Great Magus (Dieter Scharfenberg, 1980). Her best-known film is the controversial feminist thriller De stilte rond Christine M./A Question of Silence (Marleen Gorris, 1982). At IMDb, Adam Fischer reviews the film: “I find this film to be an amazing critique of patriarchy. While murder may not be the solution, this film shows the extraordinary way in which 3 women who have been beaten down their whole lives (and have nothing to lose) attempt to fight back against an enemy that is unbeatable. The laughter at the end of this film proves just who gets it and who doesn't.” In 1984 Cox Habbema returned to the Netherlands. Her film career, both in Germany and in the Netherlands, was over. She worked for the Dutch television as a presenter, producer, and editor. Between 1986 till 1996 she was the director of the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam (Municipal Theatre Amsterdam). Café Cox, a popular theatre bar and restaurant in the Stadsschouwburg building, is named after her. In 1991 and 1992 she played in the popular Dutch TV series Medisch Centrum West (Medical Centre West). In Germany, she had a guest role in an episode of the series Unser Charly/Our Charly (Dieter Kehler, 1998). Other television series in which she appeared were oog in oog/Eye to Eye (1992), Eindeloos leven/Living Endlessly (1995), and the soap series Het Glazen Huis/The Glass House (2004) starring Willeke van Ammelrooy. Habbema’s last TV appearance was in the drama Kilkenny Cross (Eric Oosthoek, 2006). Since her departure from the Stadsschouwburg, she operated in many managerial functions and as a chairwoman for several Dutch cultural institutes, she lectured at the Tilburg School of Humanities and works as a trainer and consultant. In 2002 Habbema published her memoirs, 'Mijn koffer in Berlijn' (My Suitcase in Berlin). In October and November 2004 she went on tour with her monologue 'Een vrouw in Berlijn' (A woman in Berlin), based on an anonymous diary of a young woman in Berlin at the end of the second world war. In 2006 Cox Habbema was honoured for her special merits for the Dutch society and named Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau. After her marriage to Eberhard Esche had ended in a divorce, Cox Habbema married to lawyer Robert van de Vijver in 1994. He died in 1997.
