Club Toulouse

Dive into the Parisian nightlife of artist Toulouse-Lautrec.

Club Toulouse is a moveable, visual performance that attempts to find answers to gold-and-glitter-covered-stereotypical-extravagant-gender-fluffy-box-thinking-profiling-prancing-state-symbol-related-questions. 

Inspired by the work and life of Toulouse-Lautrec, the famed French illustrator/painter who captured Parisian nightlife on canvas, performers Roman Van Houtven and Marieke Dermul delve into the hinterland of fashion, nightlife and young people's emotional appetites.    

Roman Van Houtven is a dancer, choreographer, actor and playwright. He graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in 2014, after which he remains involved with Rosas Education as a dance teacher and educator. He danced in "Un Sacre du Printemps" (Daniel Linehan/Hiatus) and worked as a choreographer for BRONKS/De Munt ("It's Frankenstein, Stupid!") and the Kunsthumaniora Brussel. Since 2016, he has performed in BRONKS' internationally acclaimed "Us/Them" ("Us/Them"). Recently, he was active as a choreographer at Dance X Performance (Rosas Education). In the renewed VRT series 'Dertigers' Roman will play a leading role. In his own stage work, he looks for how text and movement go together harmoniously. To how a movement sometimes says more than a thousand words and how a strong sentence can strengthen a choreography. 

 

Marieke Dermul is a digital storyteller (VRT, among others) and theater maker/multidisciplinary performer. She graduated from the Theaterschool of Amsterdam in 2014. She has performed for hetpaleis, Maas Theater & Dance, fABULEUS and Frascati. In her own multidisciplinary work - often with a dash of pop music - Dermul likes to play with the boundary between docu and fiction. In addition to being a theater maker, she is also a singer-songwriter and DJ. 

 

Gytha Parmentier completed her Drama studies at KASK School of Arts Ghent in 2014. Since then, she has predominantly performed in theater. With 'Wij/Zij' and 'Show' (BRONKS/directed by Carly Wijs) she traveled the world and won the Vertebra Award for Best Actress (Fringe Festival), among others. She works for various companies, including Ontroerend Goed, fABULEUS, Laika (recently playing in 'Lucht') and playField. She also starred in TV series such as "The Infiltrator," "Missing" and "The Knight. Both on and off screen, Gytha dances a lot. In 2016, she started the Twerk collective 'Tw*rkshop'. She also dances with 't Schoon Vertier (cabaret) and developed in contemporary dance through workshops and performances with Les Ballets C de la B.
