Timo Sterckx: “I am interested in performing and ‘the game of performing’. I try to understand all aspects of the game (form and content) in order to achieve as great a diversity as possible in terms of virtuosity in my own practice. My creativity and thinking processes always start when I’m on stage.”
During the Love at first Sight festival you can see Timo Sterckx also in Toverberg by Desnor.
