The Belgium Team (Friday show)
At our Friday Night Solo Battle we will have a great team of Belgium actors. Johan Vantomme, Bruno Claeys and Stefanie de Pauw. Some of you might know them as part of ‘Knip’ who won the NTT two years ago. They are physical, whimsical and well… Flamish. Which says a lot about their free minds. They perform solo in the Belgium Remi-spinoff concept ‘Only the Lonely’.
The Dutch Team (Friday show)
The Friday Night Solo Battle will be played by Marith Venderbosch, Ben van Bokhoven and Reinier Posthumus. These very experienced Dutch improvisers are funny, original and each have a strong and very different personality. They can transform from comedy to drama and back. So be prepared to be amazed.
Hans Koops (Ludo the Clown)
Hans Koops has his roots in the classical pantomime, before he was touched by the clown. His creation was formed in the theater, on the street, international festivals and within organizations. But always in direct contact with people. Like he still does, in his work as a Cliniclown in the hospital. This is how he improvises his life too. On stage and beyond. Time to enjoy the improvising clown.
