Kyoko Scholiers (°1981) graduated from Studio Herman Teirlinck in 2003 and ever since worked as an actress and performance maker with De Roovers, Het Toneelhuis, Comp.Marius, Theater Antigone, HETPALEIS, BRONKS and others. With fellow artists Louis van der Waal and Maarten Westra Hoekzema she founds the collective unm. Together they created projects like Tussen hond en wolf in 2009 and The house that built us in 2012. In the meantime, with Ruth Becquart, she creates the performance LETTER. This production won the Dioraphte prize. In 2015, Kyoko created Bastard, a comical-existential research into her alleged descent from Napoleon Bonaparte. The multimedial theatre performance was very well received by the press and toured intensively in Flanders and the Netherlands.
At this moment, Kyoko is performing Misconnected, an installation with fragments of phone conversations with people who are in one way or another disconnected from society. She did camera work for Any Way the Wind Blows by Tom Barman and Rosie. In De hel van Tanger she played the character of Inge Van Loock. She did several guest roles for Flemish TV series as Code 37, Vermist, Rang 1 and Aspe.
