Thibaud Delpeut (1978) studied psychology and followed the director’s course in Amsterdam. His big breakthrough was in 2007 with the play Brittannicus by Racine, and Antigone-Kreon-Oidipous after Sofokles (2009).
With his excentric view on theatre classics, Delpeut creates tightly choreographed, sharply realistic performances for an expansive target audience. With Miller’s All My Sons (also seen in Season 12|13 with TA), Delpeut completed a trilogy on war and violence following Blasted (Sarah Kane) and the self written Nacht. Delpeut took a new step in his search to a modern approach to the stage classics with Nore (2012). From September 2013, Delpeut is artistic director of DUS.
Delpeut’s directions can be identified by the central part of mankind, and its dilemma’s, choices and search for meaning. Always with the underlying question why the world is the way it is, and why living together – both in the personal and societal spectrum – tends to be so complicated.
