Together with his fellow graduates of the Herman Teirlinck Institute, Stef Aerts (°1987) set up the FC Bergman theatre company in 2009.
Their productions (De Thuiskomst , Wandelen op de Champs Elysées…, 300el-50el-30el, Van den Vos) were selected by various prominent theatre festivals and performed all over Europe.
Their latest for instance, Het Land Nod, was programmed this summer during the entire Festival d’Avignon receiving both great critical and public acclaim.
Separately, Stef was cast by director Ivo Van Hove for his productions at Toneelgroep Amsterdam on several occasions.
In the meantime he is playing supporting parts in a dozen Flemish films and TV-drama before taking to the impressive leading role in Adem, portraying a young muco patient’s emotional rollercoaster towards his anticipation of a lung transplant.
After having played the lead in Felix Van Groeningen’s film Belgica, Stef Aerts is presently portraying the part of a vicious gangmember in Robin Pront’s version of the story about an anarchistic gang of robbers in 18th century Flandres. To be broadcast soon…
