FC Bergman

Six actors, creators, and artists (Stef Aerts, Joé Agemans, Matteo Simoni, Jonas Vermeulen, Thomas Verstraeten, Marie Vinck), FC Bergman met while studying drama in Antwerp, before creating their collective in 2008. With their shows (Terminator Trilogie, 300 el x 50 el x 30 el, JR…), they have created their own dramatic language, insolent and poetic, often wordless, whose plastic power and capacity for evocation are striking. They draw inspiration from cinema, art history, and great religious stories. They have been associate artists with the Toneelhuis in Antwerp since 2013, and are coming back to the Festival d’Avignon after Het Land Nod (The Land of Nod), which played in 2016 in the Parc des expositions.
