Bjarne Devolder

Bjarne Devolder (b. 1995) graduated this year as an actor and theatre maker from the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Inspired by Small Town Boy by Falk Richter, Bjarne collaborated with Naomi Velissariou on the production Mijn Volk. Together they made the coming-of-age story of a homosexual boy, Luca, who grew up in a homophobic environment and as a result has developed a tremendous sense of self-hatred.
