Every month, Etcetera gazes into the soul of a performing artist. We choose artistic interest over human interest. This time, we are happy to give the word to actor and theatre maker Benny Claessens. He played in performances by Luk Perceval, Jan Decorte, Johan Simons and Ersan Mondtag, among others. For his acting work he received the Arlecchino in 2009 and Alfred-Kerr-Darstellerpreis in 2018. As a theatre maker, he has been drawing his own uncompromising path for years, with performances such as Hello Useless (Campo, 2015) and Learning How to Walk (NTGent, 2016).
