Maxim Storms is an iconoclast who learned the trade at KASK (School of Arts Ghent) and plays and performs at various stages for various audiences. As a member of Ballet Dommage, with Katrien Valckenaers, he never ceases to amaze with its specific intent, language or stage setting. As a member of performance band Brik Tu-Tok, with Linde Carrijn, he generates a wide range of sounds with cassette tapes, household knick knacks and handmade objects.
Vincent Company supports Maxim’s dark and comical theatre work -both solo or in duo with Lobke Leirens- in which the absurd prevails with his preposterous humour, moustache pokerface and impeccable sense of timing. Brutal songs of life, gibberish dada monologues, cosmic collages and sponge sculptures are never far away.
De Standaard has named him “the Charlie Chaplin of his generation” because of the slapstick that heavily characterises his style. The last few years Maxim (and his co-creators) could add no less than 5 selections for Het TheaterFestival or Circuit X to their palmares. Most recently, Tribunal (BRONKS & Ballet Dommage) made its way to het TheaterFestival.
In 2022-2023, Maxim Storms reprises Folks&Fools together with Lobke Leirens. In addition he is creating a new solo: NUGGETS (premiering at CAMPO, Ghent).
