He has been a member of Toneelroep De Appel, where he acts and directs, since 2010. Besides his work in theatre he has also acted in various films and television series, such as Pleidooi, De vloer op and Keyzer & De Boer Advocaten.

‘After having worked with Johan Simons for almost ten years, I am now getting the opportunity to work with the other great theatre-maker of the Netherlands (although the Dutchman was working in Belgium, and the Belgian man is working in Holland). Even though their methods and characters appear to be complete opposites, they have both been leading theatre land and know how to align themselves to the best actors.’, says Aus.
