Luk Van den Dries has devoted his life to the study of theater. Theater is a place where people and communities are healed. It shows the vulnerability and fragility of people, allows us to fail and mercilessly exposes our intimacy. Theater shows what is swept under the carpet and what is unauthorized or taboo. Theater airs up because it shows what we all know, but doesn’t dare to say out loud. In many publications (books, essays, articles), he bears witness to his passion for exceptional contemporary theater makers. He specializes in how theater makers shape their ideas and how creative processes on the rehearsal floor contribute to that creative imagination. After a life devoted to teaching and research, he focuses on the art of touch. Introduction to tantra and years of deepening in various tantric inspired courses were decisive in this new path.
