DE FUUT – Bastiaan Vandendriessche
Winner of the Best International Performance Award at the Fringe Festival, Amsterdam.
Bastiaan Vandendriessche’s new play invites the audience to celebrate his sexuality towards two young girls of whom he was a leader in the Sea Scouts in Ghent, 6 years ago. ‘The thing I love about Lolita is that you’re just completely consumed and engrossed by the ardent passion of a man, who is forever doomed to crave something sinister, something twisted.’ Using theatre as an excuse to be truly honest about his feelings in these times of moral ambiguity, and as a good test if you believe that admiration is endless.
After his master International Political Sciences at the University of Ghent, Bastiaan decided that the world was too beautiful and cruel to stay stuck in reality so he went to study drama at the Conservatory of Antwerp. As an actor/performer, he has performed/performs with many companies including Ontroerend Goed, Orkater and Jotka Bauwens. One of Belgium’s most exciting new young writers his next currently play, A white man’s burden, supported by Theatre Rotterdam and Theatre Zuidpool,will première in October 2018.
