Tom Struyf is a theatremaker, writer and landscape designer. His performances are a cross between theatre, film, documentary and lecture performance. Over the years, this combination has become a regularly recurring form for him. A form that is apt to the stories he seeks to share and which serves as an effective starting point for the journeys he takes his audiences on. Tom has a unique knack for distilling art from chance. His performances are always rooted in a personal fascination – a place, a person, or a group of people – and often touch on societal topics. This makes his shows relatable and accessible to a wide audience.
In his way of working, Tom feels like a journalist, anthropologist and storyteller all at once. He calls reality into question based on the observation of a world in which fiction and reality are becoming increasingly difficult to tell apart. Tom takes his time – years – for every new project. Ideally, he likes to work in a remote place surrounded by nature, where he can stare out into the landscape for miles.
Tom Struyf will reprise Finding Willard in both the 2023–2024 and the 2024–2025 seasons.
