Timeau De Keyser (b. 1988) graduated in 2011 from the School of Arts Ghent|KASK Gent (Master of Drama). Together with Hans Mortelmans and Simon De Winne in 2009, he cofounded the theatre company Tibaldus, with which he made the impressive Paard: een opera (2010) and, in collaboration with Theater Stap, 4:3 (2012). Shortly thereafter came Persona (2013). The work of Tibaldus bears traces of a primitive and at times dark imagination, but simultaneously feels very contemporary. It often tours internationally. With Pieter Dumoulin in 2015, Timeau De Keyser made his first short film, the sultry De Reconstructie, and in March 2018 he will be launching the feature film Etangs Noirs. In the meantime, his radical adaptation of Gombrowicz’s Yvonne premiered at the Bourla Theatre in September 2016. ‘The combination of Gombrowicz’s Yvonne with Tibaldus’s poetics is a match made in heaven – both for the actors and the spectators. A perfect marriage between Gombrowicz’s absurdity and Tibaldus’s passion for performing,’ according to Jasper Delbecke in Etcetera. In september 2017 Nooit Opgevoerd Toneel played in Love at first Sight and in the third edition of that festival the company presented Het Huwelijk, another play by Gombrowicz.
